This class will introduce mokuhanga techniques using gouache as the medium for printing. We will be using Holbein’s set of gouache, Traditional Colors of Japan: Fall, as inspiration for our prints, celebrating the arrival of Fall.
Originating in China, then refined in the Edo Period in Japan, mokuhanga (Japanese water-based woodblock printing) is experiencing a contemporary revival as a nature-based art form.
Trained in Japan, Patty Hudak will guide participants in the immersive techniques of carving and printing, using handmade brushes, Japanese paper, rice glue, gouache, and a handheld baren to carve and print mokuhanga prints. We will cover the history of color in Japanese prints, and the potential of mokuhanga as a medium for contemporary printmakers.
