JAPANESE WOODCUT COURSE
TIME: 11:00 am – 5:00 pm
SAT & SUN
Tutor: Lucy Schofield
About the course:
Teaming up with the Not Quite Light photography festival in Salford, and inspired by the beautiful 12 Scenes of Tokyo series of woodcuts of Hasui Kawase (of the 1920’s Japanese shin-hanga movement), Lucy May Schofield will guide you through creating a variety of bokashi (gradations of colour) made famous by these Japanese artists. With minimal carving you will focus on the captivating printing techniques of layering watercolour pigments through several passes with the baren to build up your image, creating atmosphere and subdued light.
This is an opportunity to experiment with larger scale woodblocks as your canvas to master the inking and printing elements of Mokuhanga. Ideal for those who have been on a Mokuhanga/Japanese woodcut course before.
