Japanese Woodblock

This workshop is Ideal for those wishing to build on their skills as well as those who are new to the craft. Explore this traditional technique to create a beautiful finished woodblock print. Adrian Holmes will show you the wonderful art of Japanese woodblock printing. Traditional Japanese woodblock printing is a beautiful and meditative print process using watercolours and rice. Green and environmentally friendly, it uses non-toxic materials to create rich organic prints which are beautiful to the eye. This form of printing requires no printing press and is all done manually giving the artist complete freedom and control. Enjoy this opportunity to learn in a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere and create a beautiful finished woodblock print.

Materials: All materials will be provided by the tutor. The items you will need to bring with you are listed below. Please bring with you: · Any sketches or photos that inspire you, but this is not compulsory (Keep ideas simple!!!) · you might like to bring your own watercolours (which must be in tubes) as the tutor will just have basic colours · Any of your own paint brushes you want to use. · Wear something that can be splashed without disaster, (although it is not a particularly messy process)
