The Substance and the Shadow

Advanced Mokuhanga (water-based woodblock printmaking)

Description

This course is now fully booked.

Please email cfprinfo@uwe.ac.uk if you would like to be added to the waiting list. 

The course will focus on advanced carving techniques, such as shallow carving for textural effects, carving fine lines and using resist methods on the woodblock. You will deepen your knowledge and experience of more sophisticated printing techniques, such as achieving expanded gradation styles, blind embossing, woodgrain effect and mica printing.

You are encouraged to bring your own carved blocks with you to develop your printing and Lucy will provide Japanese shina plywood to use to test carving effects to create various samples of line and shape.

This is an opportunity to trouble shoot any carving/registration/printing issues you may have experienced and to gain further confidence to achieve higher quality, consistent prints in your mokuhanga practice. This course is an opportunity to experiment and test effects that you can then return to your studio to home.

Price: £349.00 full price / £279.00 concessionary price
