This class will be given by master printmaker Dan Noyes. It is a comprehensive introduction to Japanese Mokuhanga printing, which involves a combination of relief, stencil, and wood grain printing. The paper used is washi and rice paper -- thin Asian paper known for its unique texture. Images are transferred from the carved block to both sides of washi paper using a hand-held tool called a baren.
Japanese Mokuhanga printing is one of the oldest types of printmaking. 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.
