Crow Collection of Asian Art presents Japanese Woodblock Course with Kazuko Goto
This four-part course, led by local printmaker Kazuko Goto, will teach the traditional process of Japanese woodblock printing. Japanese woodblock, also known as moku hanga, is an 18th-century printmaking process unique to Japan which revolutionized color printing.
In tandem with the Crow Collection’s new exhibition, "Styled with Poise: Figures in Japanese Paintings and Prints," students will gather every Tuesday for four weeks to learn the process, its history, and its contemporary uses. Participants will receive instruction in carving, color registration, inking, and hand printing techniques and learn about traditional tools and materials, including how to create nori paste for making inks.
