Moku Hanga: Japanese Waterbase Woodcut


This is an intensive weekend workshop that covers the basics of this traditional Japanese printmaking technique. Moku means wood and hanga can be translated as printmaking. It is the same water based technique used to create the famous ukiyo-e prints of 18th century Japan. Mokuhanga differs from western woodblock in that it is printed with watercolor and gouache, so no toxic solvents are used; it is printed with a hand held baren rather than a press; and it employs the accurate kento registration system, cut directly into the block. A final significant characteristic is the use of washi, handmade Japanese kozo fiber paper, especially suited for this kind of printing.

The class will begin with a short discussion of the history of Japanese woodblock, and will include hands-on demonstrations of registration, cutting, and printing. Participants will create a small edition of multi-colored prints during the class.

Students should bring tracing paper, hard pencils and a sketch approximately 7.5 x 5.5.
The $25 fee includes blocks, color, Japanese paper and use of basic cutting and printing tools.
