Mokuhanga is a technique dating back to the 8th century (moku meaning wood, and hanga meaning print). Made famous during the ukiyo-e era of Japanese woodblock printmaking, mokuhanga stands out from other printmaking processes with its use of water-based pigments, brushes to apply the ink, and hand printing method.
You'll explore the basics of mokuhanga by carving woodblocks and hand printing images. This process is completely non-toxic. With the experience gained in class, you can expect to be able to continue at home with your own practice.
