Learn the basic techniques of the Japanese tradition of woodblock printmaking with water-based inks. This tradition is associated with the extraordinary lessons of design and color passed on from the earliest Ukiyo-e masters. All aspects of the process are introduced: proper care and use of the carving tools, preparing and carving the wood blocks, and hand printing using the baren. Japanese papers, water-based pigments, and color registration are also covered in the class.
