This highly enjoyable and rigorous intensive course introduces students to the carving and printing processes to achieve a beautiful multiple colour print using water based pigments. After designing an image you’ll transfer the outlines to a finegrained woodblock, then carve two or more colour areas using specialized Japanese tools. Registration enables you to print colour areas exactly according to plan. Printing is accomplished using brushes to apply the inks, and the impression is made using a flat disk called a baren, onto Japanese papers.
Carving tools, printing brushes, individual barens and materials are all included.
