Workshop// Japanese Woodcut Printing

Last summer, we joined the introduction workshop of Japanese woodcut in ‘s-Hertogenbosch. I used to learn wood carving the elementary school in Japan, but our boy grown up in The Netherlands had never experienced this unique technique.
After a short introduction of woodcut printing by the printmaker, Yuriko Miyoshi, we started designing our own motif. Next, we could really focus on carving. Carving is definitely not easy yet truly fun to do. You also start wondering how the image wil come out. Finally,  the most exciting moment is when we print with sumi ink on Washi paper. We learned how to give the right pressure to get the best result. Not only the printed artwork is beautiful, but also the carved wooden board is a piece of art.

I just heard that the next workshop is coming soon! You can check the 81workshops and Yuriko‘s website for the details.
