Moku means wood, and hanga can be translated as printmaking. Both these classes will introduce contemporary artists to traditional Japanese woodblock printing, the same technique used by the Ukiyo-e artists of the 18th century. Moku hanga provides precise registration and great control over color and a connection to one of the most important chapters in the history of printmaking. Participants will cut and print a small edition of prints to learn about this nontoxic technique. We will cut blocks during the first half of class and print during the second half. Each class will begin with a discussion of a different aspect of Japanese woodblock, including tools, sharpening, printing techniques, and paper. All levels.
