Moku-hanga: An Introduction to Traditional Japanese Woodblock Printing with Kanani Miyamoto
Location: Portland Studio
Teacher: Kanani Miyamoto
This one day workshop will introduce students to the centuries old art form of Japanese moku-hanga woodblock printmaking. This woodblock printing technique originated in China and then moved to Japan as a way to spread printed texts and create Japan’s traditional color washed prints such as The Great Wave off Kanagawa by Hokusai. Students will learn the proper use of traditional tools and materials, carving, basic registration, and vocabulary associated with this timeless printmaking technique. The class will experiment and play and leave with the basic skills and knowledge to work on more complex prints at home as well. This class is open to beginners who are interested in printmaking as well as experienced printmakers who are interested in expanding their techniques.
