Register Here The Japanese method of multicolor woodblock printing, using brushes and watercolors and hand pressure, is both simple and complex. In this 3-day course, we will focus on using a kento ban (floating kento); learning and practicing tsubushi (uniform printing), bokashi (gradation), and gomazuri (texture). A good deal of time will be spent on each technique, to ensure that participants will leave with new skills they can apply to projects after the class has ended. This course is for those who have already taken a basic mokuhanga class, either from Linda or another instructor. Please bring your own wood blocks, carving tools and baren.
