This course is only for those students who have already completed the beginners class. This ten week course will be ideal for the student who is fully familiar with mokuhanga and would like to explore more advanced techniques such as graduated colour (bokashi) or texture (gomazuri).
We will look at the work of contemporary Japanese woodcut artists for inspiration, experiment with different carving methods and explore the many variables that make this such a fascinating technique. The class is designed to be a friendly studio environment where the exchange of ideas are welcomed. The course tutor trained at RCA and MI-Lab in Japan and Mokuhanga forms her central art practice.
Refunds are not available on this booking. Start dates may be amended on request.
The classes will be a combination of studio and remote learning on alternate weeks. The remote learning will take place on Zoom and WhatsApp. On studio days there will be presentations, demonstrations, one to one guidance from the tutor and peer support discussions promoting a lively and friendly studio. Remote learning will involve access to videos and relevant online sites plus the advantage to be working from home with tutorial input. Students will be expected to be able to work in a more autonomous way on their own projects and to bring their own mokuhanga research to the class to share with the group. There will be exploration and experimentation of other Mokuhanga artists methodology and a critical evaluation of process.
The studios have been adapted to be Covid-safe. Student numbers are limited to a maximum of 6 learners with a 2 metre distancing guidance. Please bring and wear a face protector. You will be asked to bring and use your own tools and drawing equipment. Any shared tools will be sanitised after use.
