This Japanese Woodcut course will take place over 2 Saturdays, allowing time for you to develop your work and cut blocks in between the sessions. You will learn how to transfer your drawings to the blocks, cutting techniques using traditional tools, then how to ink and print the blocks with help to understand how to get the right combination of paste and ink, the right moisture in block and paper, and hand burnishing with the baren. The day will start with a look at some Japanese Woodblock prints and a discussion and a brief overview of the history of the technique, and the names and uses of the tools.
Soomin Leong trained in Singapore with Japanese Woodcut master Kitamura.
