One-Day Woodblock

Make your own mokuhanga woodblock in just a few hours.

What will I learn in this class?
Experience the beauty of this unmistakable Japanese art in a workshop designed for beginners. Students learn the basics of woodblock history and techniques before trying their hand at printing from a small, precarved block for a piece they can take home and admire all in one afternoon.

For a more in-depth woodblock printing experience, please see the Woodblock Printing class.
