Motoharu Asaka Woodblock Print Workshop


In stock


Saturday May 12, 2018
Full practical workshop, maximum 15 participants.

A rare opportunity to be taught by Motoharu Asaka! During this one day workshop you will create your own small woodblock print using traditional water-based Japanese woodblock printing techniques.

Learn from a master ukiyoe carver who has studied in a tradition stretching back 400 years.

Motoharu Asaka is one of a handful of people left who are traditionally trained in this craft. This is a rare opportunity to learn master skills and try woodblock printmaking for yourself.

Asaka apprenticed for 17 years, but you can pick up the basics in this intensive workshop!

Japanese woodblock printmaking (mokuhanga) is water based and completely non-toxic. It requires only basic tools that can be assembled at home without a workshop. Begin your woodblock journey with this primer!
