Introduction to Japanese Color Woodblock Printmaking
The Japanese developed a woodblock printing method using water as a medium, brushes to apply colors to the blocks, and a hand-held baren instead of a press to transfer colors from multiple carved blocks to printing papers. This is a low carbon-footprint, non-toxic printing method with a great history.
The workshop is organized to offer a comprehensive introduction to the wonderful range of tools, techniques, and materials involved in this art form.  Everyone completes a multi-color print and engages with aspects of design, carving, and printing. There is an emphasis on sharing tricks and techniques that may be adapted to other approaches to making art (watercolor painting, western-style printmaking).

All experience levels are welcome.  Each 3-day workshop is taught in six three hour sessions.  To find out more, and to see prints made by past class participants, visit the Studio, or send me a note.

June 1 - 3, 2024, at the Cotton Free Library, Weybridge, VT.   Big windows, good airflow,  a sweet history, I look forward to again sharing my woodblock workshop in this unique and well set-up space in June.  The Cotton Free Library,  with its counters located below large windows (six total, one for each student), is a great space for teaching hanga woodblock.  Just three doors away from our house in the Quaker Village area of Weybridge (ten minutes north of Middlebury), it backs up to a dramatic waterfall on the Otter Creek river.
Tuition is $625 including studio materials fee.  Meal and lodging options are available.  Interested to know more? Send me a note!
Limited to 6 participants.
