The aim with this workshop is the practical execution of wood block engraving following the traditional Japanese print technique. The printing procedure is distinguished by the use of water solvable pigments and printing by the force of the hand using the Japanese tool “baren”, without using any mechanical print press. It permits to achieve similar transparent effects as with aquarelle painting. You will make a print in several colours based on your own design and print a small edition. After a brief introduction to the history and analysis of Japanese prints, we start going through the steps of creation: Sketching/drawing and how to separate the colours, transferring the drawing to the wood blocks, presentation of the different knives and tools and how to use them, sharpening the tools, preparation and humidification of the papers, preparation of the watercolours from dry pigments, and finally the print process with water solvable pigments using the Japanese print tool “baren”.
