2017 Mary Brodbeck watercolor printmaking japanese woodblock

$50 materials fee includes two 8 x 10 blocks and all other tools and supplies needed.

In this three-day workshop, learn the basics of Mokuhanga – a rare Japanese printmaking process that uses watercolor pigment, woodblocks, Japanese carving tools, rice paste and Japanese paper – and create a multi-color woodblock print. Demonstrations will include layout and design, carving, and printing with a hand held burnishing tool, a “baren.” A print exchange on the last day will offer the opportunity of taking home a sampling of your classmates’ work.

Mary Brodbeck studied Mokuhanga with Yoshisuke Funasaka in Tokyo under the auspices of the prestigious Bunka-Cho Fellowhip in 1998. Through the aesthetic lens of her studies in Japan, Brodbeck’s woodblock prints are inspired by the Great Lakes landscape she still calls home. Her 2014 award-winning documentary film, “Becoming Made,” about the Mokuhanga process, may be seen at vimeo.com/101153644 (password: mokuhanga).

Workshop Dates: July 5, 6, and 7 | Time: 9 am – 4 pm
