EASY-PRINT JAPANESE WOODBLOCK WORKSHOP
Want to experience Japanese woodblock printing the quick and easy way? Join me for a fun session creating multiple colour prints - without any carving muscle! Participants can choose from a number of blocks inspired by Victorian tiles - a prominent feature in Peranakan architecture.
Using specially-designed pre-carved blocks, this fun workshop is perfect for beginner students wanting to get maximum results in minimum time! Students will get hands-on experience in proofing and printing their own edition of prints on professional grade washi paper.
The workshop will also cover the traditional techniques used in this 400-year-old craft including information on image transfer and carving. Water-based and non-toxic, Japanese woodblock printing is great for creating unique prints at home.
No experience is necessary and all tools and materials are provided. Participant numbers are kept small to ensure lots of teacher attention. Create a beautiful set of prints to frame or give to friends as a memory of Singapore!
We like to keep it cosy - so only four persons per class.
Jennifer Lim is a printmaker trained in Australia and Japan, and loves to share printmaking techniques and her Peranakan heritage.
