For artists in home studios without a press, this beautiful, low-tech process may be the perfect solution. This workshop introduces a traditional Japanese woodblock printing process, the key-block technique. You will learn to carve the woodblock, use Japanese carving tools, and print with water-based ink on Japanese paper. Participants will cut their own woodblocks and create a small edition of multicolor prints. All levels are welcome.
Tomoko Murakami received an MFA in printmaking from San Francisco Art Institute. A Kala fellow in 1992, her work embraces both traditional and contemporary approaches to the art of woodblock printing. Murakami’s work in exhibited internationally.
