This class will introduce you to the basics of traditional Japanese woodblock printmaking by hand. Variations of this style have existed since the eighth century. By the end of the class, you will have produced a unique edition of prints while learning the printmaking process from start to finish.

This class will cover: how to carve a woodblock, inking techniques such as colour block/gradation/transparency, how to print by hand, and how to register your prints.

Master this accessible technique and take your new knowledge home with you, it is non-toxic and does not require expensive equipment- perfect for home!

I throughly enjoyed the wood block printing class! I had some experience with lino printing from high school, and the techniques are similar to those used in wood block printing. The class was relaxed, with many tips provided, and supportive of people with all levels of experience. Would recommend!

We carved a design out of a piece of wood, tried out different tools. We then printed on Japanese washi paper. It was fun.

The teacher was good, friendly and patient.

We learnt basic woodblock printing techniques. Emilie was a very friendly, supportive and fun teacher. I had no experience but still managed to create some cool prints with her help.
