The ancient art of woodblock printing has changed little since its origins in China in 220 CE. There is a certain magic in the way that the inks rest on fine Japanese paper when transferred from the inked carved wood block using a baren. In this workshop, students will carve designs into Shina wood and print them onto mulberry paper by hand, using water-based inks. Students will master how to take the method further by printing an un-inked carved block in the etching press as a collagraph, producing a sculptural print. Minimum of 3 students, maximum 5.
