Join sensei Katsu Yuasa to learn the art of Moku Hanga (Japanese Woodblock Print). Japanese artists Hokusai and Hiroshige are synonymous with Japan and introduce viewers the the traditional medium of ukiyo-e prints. But do you know how these beautiful works, as well as the traditional depictions of Edo-period geisha and famous actors, and travel scenes came to be? Moku hanga, the Japanese art of woodblock printing, uses water-based inks and carved wooden blocks to create designs that are gently transferred onto paper.

In the two series class you will complete 1 postcard sized print with colors.

The two sessions for this class can be chosen from this list and we will follow-up with you via email on which dates you will attend.
