Another chance to work with expert printmaker and teacher Andrew Parry. This weekend workshop offers you the chance to learn the basic principles and techniques of the ancient artform of Japanese woodblock printing. Working over two days will allow you to go at your own pace, really immerse yourself in the techniques and take time to develop strong, graphic images.
It will suit anyone wishing to try out or refresh their skills in this area, whether you are a complete beginner or have knowledge of other forms of art and craft.
Andrew will teach you how to select and simplify an image, cut your design into your block, ink up and print. You do not need a large printing press for this printing technique which means that after this workshop, you will be able to develop and make further prints in your own time. The workshop will include discussion about tools and equipment.
Andrew will also point you towards the work of master practitioners in the art of relief printing including of course, the Japanese masters such as Hokusai.
All tools, equipment and materials are provided.
Cost £90 including materials and equipment.
