Saturday December 15th
This class will be an introduction to Japanese Mokuhanga printing. This type of printing involves relief printing, stencil printing, and wood grain printing.
The paper used is washi and rice paper-thin Asian paper known for unique texture.
Japanese Mokuhanga printing is one of the oldest types of printmaking combing relief, stencils and wood grain. Images are transferred from the carved block to both sides of uniquely textured Asian washi paper using a hand-held tool called a baren. The earliest types of prints in China using this method were Buddhist prints; Mokuhanga printing was used to substitute laborious copying of texts and images.
