About the Workshop
Learn the amazing Japanese water based printing technique from Australia's only certified teacher of Mokuhanga, Terry McKenna
Starting with your own design, learn safe and effective carving techniques and take the project through to a finished print with the simple, eco-friendly tools and techniques from Japan.
From complete beginners to professional artists, anyone can learn and use this technique.
Mokuhanga is endlessly versatile, environmentally friendly, uses no toxic inks or solvents, has simple tools and materials and is inherently beautiful. There is no need for an expensive press or a lot of space.
Work from your own home once you know the technique.
In a two-day period students are briefly introduced to the history and concepts of Mokuhanga and taught the three main processes in mokuhanga – design, carving and printing. The end aim is to have produced a finished two colour print.This is a non-toxic, water-based printing technique
