Drawing, Design and Mokuhanga (Japanese Woodblock Printmaking) with Debra Bowden
- Date Listed07/05/2019
This one day workshop focuses on black and white
images and begins with experimental drawing and mark making using a variety of
tools and materials. The drawings are developed into designs suitable for
carving into birch plywood blocks. The carved woodblocks are then printed onto
a variety of papers, producing a series of black and white prints 15 x 15 cm.
Mokuhanga is an environmentally friendly ancient Japanese technique using water
based inks and hand burnishing (no need for a printing press) making this an
accessible method to continue at home. Suitable for complete beginners or those
with some previous experience.
