Printing Techniques and Baren Making for Japanese Woodblock Printing

This workshop will have two parts: We’ll cover printing techniques specific to Japanese woodblock printing. And students will learn how to make and maintain the traditional Japanese baren, an essential tool for this style of printing. We will not carve blocks in this short workshop, but pre-carved blocks will be available for practice. We’ll focus on technique rather than concept with a loose structure that will allow students to tailor the workshop to their needs. Although students with some experience will get the most out of this workshop, it is open to all levels. Letterpress studio.

Associate professor at Trinity University (TX); master printer training at Tamarind Institute (NM); exhibitions: McNay Art Museum (TX), Art-Trophy Gallery (Russia). 



This workshop begins at 5:00 p.m. on Friday and workshop activities will end at 5:00 p.m. on Sunday; students are welcome to stay through Monday morning. Monday breakfast will be the last meal provided; please plan to depart campus by 10:00 a.m.

NOTE: Participation in fall workshops will require proof of full COVID-19 vaccination.
