Announcing a week long workshop with Kyoto master mokuhanga artist, Mashiko Honjo.
*** Due to recent developments with the Covid Virus, we have unfortunately had to postpone this 2020 workshop. New dates and costs will be announced when available ***
Waiting to confirm dates... sorry!
Book early to avoid missing out on this rare opportunity to learn directly from a Japanese master in Australia. Honjo san trained in the Kyoto workshop of Ida Masao (Gallery Gado near the Golden Pavilion) and since leaving to work independently has produced a substantial body of beautiful and highly successful mokuhanga. With his classical training and modern artistic sensibilities, his work features strong design, beautiful harmonious colours combined with high level skills. His work is exhibited regularly throughout Japan and is held by a number of online galleries specializing in Japanese printmakers.
In this workshop we are only accepting printmakers with prior experience & skills in mokuhanga. It is not suitable for beginners, unfortunately. This means printmakers who have completed workshops / classes with teachers in Australia or Japan. The workshop is limited to 10 participants and you will be completing a medium sized work of your own design incorporating some of Honjo san's techniques. Honjo san is aiming to teach several of his signature carving and printing techniques.
