    Join us for a fun weekend workshop with passionate and accomplished guest artist Rosanna Jurisevic.

    Learn to create unique woodblock relief prints using the traditional Japanese mokuhanga method. This practice uses multiple blocks to print each colour separately to create a multi-colour design.

    Rosanna Jurisevic will share her expertise on image composition and selection. She will then guide you through creating your own unique design and preparing your woodblocks.

    Experiment with different techniques for marking and carving your woodblock. Learn how to achieve tone and create different types of line using a range of methods, tools and equipment.

    Once you have transferred your image to your woodblock, you’ll learn about colour theory, mixing and how to register your paper. Then hand print your design using a baren (a traditional bamboo hand printing tool) and water-based inks.

    Full instruction is provided on materials, products, tools, equipment and studio procedures.

    Intimate class size: maximum 8 students.
    Level: designed for beginner to intermediate level students.
    Wear: comfortable clothing and enclosed shoes (aprons provided).
    Bring: yourself and lunch – all materials provided including stock paper.

    We use sustainable and non-toxic inks and non-toxic cleaning products and methods wherever possible.
