In this summer intensive, traditional methods of Eastern printmaking will be explored through a Western lens. Art and nature come together in this hands-on exploration of Mokuhanga printmaking or Japanese woodblock printing. This is an introductory course that teaches the traditional techniques of wood carving, inking, and hand-printing with water-based ink. Design work will be influenced by a greater understanding of historical prints. Through investigation of printing techniques dating back to the Edo period (1603-1868) for the style known as Ukiyo-e, this class will explore and demonstrate a close appreciation of nature in the practice of art-making.
