Mokuhanga is perfect for artists interested in a non-toxic, table-top printmaking technique.


Over the course of the weekend you will learn the basic skills to transfer and carve a ‘key line’ and colour separation blocks, in the tradition of Japanese Ukiyo-e printmaking. With no press required, only a hand held barren, you will learn techniques to achieve various print effects, from ‘sesame printing’ to ‘bokashi’ (gradation), while registering your multi-block image through the simple traditional ‘kento’ system. You will be sure to fall in love with both the process and results of this accessible, water-based printmaking method which provides endless possibilities.

Lucy May Schofield learnt Japanese printmaking and paper making techniques while recently living in Japan for 2 years. Lucy has taught nationally for almost 10 years and is an internationally renowned book artist with work in many collections. She has recently returned from a Printmaking residency in California.
