Mokuhanga: Japanese Woodblock Printing Workshop
August 21, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm| $55
August 21, 7-9pm – Design and Carve
August 28, 7-9pm – Ink and Print
This intimate, quiet workshop is a low-tech, hands-on introduction to the non-toxic, traditional art of Japanese woodblock carving and printing, or mokuhanga. Don’t expect to create The Great Wave off Kanagawa, but do expect to learn fun new skills while getting pleasantly zen’d out. Choose to attend both evenings for the full introductory experience of designing, carving, inking and printing your blocks. Or, choose one and enjoy designing + carving (Aug 21), or inking + printing (Aug 28).
Register for the first class for $55 or both classes for $100. (Members get 10% off their registration fee)
Registration limited to 6 participants
