Japanese Woodblock Printmaking

The Japanese technique of woodblock printmaking is very different to the Western technique. While in the Western tradition, oil-based ink is applied with a roller and printed onto the papers surface often with the help of a press, in the Japanese tradition the water-based ink is applied with a brush and, while being printed by hand, is pressed deeply into the absorbent Japanese paper.

This workshop offers an insight into one of the most ancient and subtle print processes. Practitioners will be introduced to this fascinating medium through demonstrations of printing and cutting techniques. Following that there will be ample opportunity to explore the medium, cutting blocks and printing in layers of colour. No previous experience required.

Woodcut is a simple yet powerful print medium process. Learn to cut your own images into wood or linoleum and experience the different effects that inking up with colour can produce.
