Join us to celebrate the CAN Japanese Festival during the month of May, as we highlight the rich variety of traditional and contemporary arts and culture of Japan. There will be exhibitions for you to visit, plus events and workshops to experience during the whole month.
On Saturday 4 May, a real treat is in store for you. Register now to attend this fascinating Artist’s Talk and Interactive Demo by Artist and Printmaker, Sybille Schlumbom.
Sybille is an expert in the area of Japanese Woodcut Printmaking, called simply Mokuhanga.
Japanese woodcut differs from European woodcut in three particular ways:
- The application of the water based inks by brush
- The use of a hand held baren for printing
- The use of kento registration marks, carved directly into the block
She will conduct an interesting talk on her residency in Tokyo, demonstrate the technique of Mokuhanga and instruct the participants wishing to take part how to create their own Mokuhanga print to take home.
This workshop is aimed at adult beginners as well as artists, printmakers, book lovers and teachers. It will encourage learning and group participation, while learning about a technique presented directly from a residency in Japan.
Cost: $10 which includes materials should you wish to make a print
