Moku-Hanga: The JapaneseWoodblock Print
Thurs., May 10—May 31, 6:30 p.m.
Students in this class learn the history of the medium and the traditional Japanese method for making both black-and-white and multicolor woodblock prints. Using Japanese materials and tools, such as hamono (cutting tools), baren (rubbing pads), and washi (handmade papers specially produced for moku-hanga), students can expect to complete at least one black-and-white print and one multicolor print. The instructor directs students through the multicolor printmaking process using a common image designed to reinforce materials and techniques. Students progress to designing their own single-color print compositions that they take through the entire printmaking process. Shared supplies—including inks, blocks, paper, and brushes—are provided. A list of cutting and rubbing tools is sent prior to the first class. Instructor Robert Lindsay’s one-man show is on view at the Washington Printmakers Gallery through Feb. 25.
