EASY-PRINT JAPANESE WOODBLOCK WORKSHOP
'I would recommend this workshop to friends and family - particularly those who are interested in Japanese culture and those who are looking to try something new and different.' - Aileen Lim, Singapore.
Want to experience Japanese woodblock the easy way? Join Australian-Peranakan artist Jennifer Lim for a fun morning of creating multiple colour prints - without the hefty carving! Participants can choose from a number of blocks inspired by Victorian tiles - a prominent feature in Peranakan architecture.
Students will make a set of prints on professional grade washi paper using specially-designed pre-carved blocks. This unique workshop is perfect for beginner students wanting maximum results in minimum time!
The workshop will also demonstrate traditional techniques of this 400-year-old craft including image transfer and carving. Water-based and non-toxic, Japanese woodblock printing is great for creating prints at home.
