Printmaking workshop on the Japanese tradition of Baren printing on Washi (Japanese paper) accompanied by a talk with the Japanese printmaker and papermaker, Yuriko Miyoshi, on the different printing methods showcased in the exhibition Poetry of Place. This workshop will introduce the participants to the traditional tools and variety of techniques used by the artists featured in the exhibition. Moreover, by using traditional ready-made woodcut plates, you will bring your personal printed Washi home! * It takes less than 10 minutes to make one print.

木版画MOKU-HANGA is the Japanese traditional woodcut technique, well known as the 浮世絵Ukiyo-e printing; printing the blocks in relief with water-based ink using Yamato nori (starch paste), which is a reliable safe product made in Japan. Printing is not done by a press, but with a 馬連BAREN (traditional printing disc used for Moku-hanga).

和紙WASHI means Japanese paper that is commonly made from 楮Kozo, 三椏Mitsumata or 雁皮Gampi tree using the traditional method of Japanese papermaking. Since its rarity, this traditional handmade paper is also registered as Intangible cultural heritage by UNESCO.

Especially this exhibition shows several different views from each artist between ‘traditional way and modern way’ in printmaking which should be explained to audience. For instance, Katsunori Yuasa, Kanako Watanabe and Yoshie Uchida use the Baren printing technique in their woodcut works but very different. Margaret Ashman and Yuriko Miyoshi use photographic images in their etching works, but you will see the difference.
