Japanese Woodblock

Course Leader – Wuon-Gean Ho

We are pleased to announce our latest course here at East London Printmakers. Japanese Woodblock is a beautiful non-toxic printmaking technique with a long history of tradition. On this course you will learn how to design multi-block prints in 2 or more colours, carve it into soft shina plywood, and print by hand onto traditional Japanese paper with traditional brushes, water based paints and glue. You will also be shown how to use the kento system of registration to design, carve and print a multiblock 2-4 colour print, as well as being guided through designing, carving and printing a one coloured postcard sized print using more traditional tools and techniques.

Carving tools and hand printing disc (baren) are supplied so you can take these home to continue printing at home after the course.

If this sounds like your kind of thing, then there are still a couple of places left, continue reading and book your place here.
