Printmaking - Japanese Woodblock

Multnomah Arts Center • 7688 SW CAPITOL HWY PortlandOR  97219 Organized by Portland Parks and Recreation

About this event


Mokuhanga, the traditional Japanese method of woodblock printing, is an elegant, non-toxic, and low-tech process that works easily in a home studio and combines well with other printmaking methods. With its water-based pigments mixed with nori rice paste, which are applied with unique brushes and printed by hand, Mokuhanga allows for soft and painterly relief prints.

This workshop will introduce all aspects of the process: transferring images to wooden blocks, carving with Japanese tools, using the Kento registration system, and printing with traditional tools onto a Washi paper. We will also focus on a few of the printing techniques particular to the Japanese method, especially how to create a bokashi (color gradation) as well as viewing original Ukiyo-e prints

Price includes a $100 studio and materials fee which covers all basic supplies, plus tools to take home. Students may bring supplemental materials to class.
