This class will introduce mokuhanga techniques using gouache as the medium for printing. We will be using Holbein’s set of gouache, Traditional Colors of Japan: Autumn, as inspiration for our prints. Originating in Korea and China, then refined in the Edo Period in Japan, mokuhanga (Japanese water-based woodblock printing) is experiencing a contemporary revival as a nature-based art form. I will guide participants in the immersive techniques of carving and printing, using handmade brushes, Japanese paper, rice glue, gouache, and a handheld baren to carve and print 2-color mokuhanga prints. We will cover the history of color in Japanese prints, and the potential of mokuhanga as a medium for contemporary printmakers.
The 2-day workshop will be preceded by a public lecture, demonstration and meet-and-greet on Firday, November 10th from 6-8pm.
