Moku, meaning wood, and hanga, meaning print, is a traditional method which uses watercolor pigment, wood block, Japanese carving tools, rice paste and Japanese paper to create beautifully cultivated prints. The process is versatile and non-toxic and can be done entirely by hand without a printing press. Participants will learn how to transfer an image of their choosing onto a small wood block, how to carve their image out of the block using traditional Japanese tools, how to print a multi-color woodcut on Japanese paper using a tool called a baren, and how to apply the kento registration system. Information about the culture of Japan will also be shared as a part of the process. At the end of the workshop, a print exchange will occur offering each student the opportunity to go home with a portfolio from their classmates. All supplies and media will be provided by the instructor. All skill levels are welcome. Faculty Linda Beeman Instructor of Visual Arts, Interlochen College of Creative Arts Schedule The schedule for Watercolor Printmaking: Japanese Woodblock will be posted in early 2016.
