Learn Japanese woodblock printing - the easy way!
Enjoy creating multiple colour prints in a unique workshop perfect for beginners. Discover why Japanese Ukiyoe artists loved this 400-year-old technique and experience the delicate range of colour and texture variations you can make.
Select from a range of pre-carved woodblocks and create an edition of prints on Japanese Washi paper. Use non-toxic watercolour inks and recyclable materials as part of this 'green' printing technique. Colour mixing, registration and printing methods will be fully covered, and image transfer and carving will be demonstrated.
No art experience is necessary with friendly Australian-Peranakan artist & printmaker Jennifer Lim providing a relaxed and supportive environment. This is a non-carving workshop.
