An introduction workshop for the Moku-Hanga technique, also known as Ukiyo-e, “prints of the floating world” is a form of woodcut from Japan that became popular in Europe from the 1860s. There are three steps in the process of making Ukiyo-e: E-shi (the artist), Hori-shi (the woodcarver) and Suri-shi (the printer).
We first start with a presentation about the Japanese woodcut, the making process, the materials and the tools. You can see some original historical Japanese woodcut prints.
Next we will see the demonstration using ready made plates with beautiful Japanese classic designs as Suri-shi to try to print the woodcut plates.
We do this with color ink and Yamato Nori (non-toxic glue) on water-base using horsehair brushes and onto Japanese paper with the Baren. A Baren is a Japanese traditional instrument that is used instead of a printing press. All this together is the most suitable for making this kind of print works.
First you make your design as E-shi and transfer it onto a wooden plate, next with knives you carve as Hori-shi. The last step as Suri-shi, you make printing inks and afterwards you print this woodcut with a Baren and on different Japanese papers. You can also learn which Japanese papers are suitable for your way.
In this workshop, you can get a chance to see the special collections of Dr. Ad Stijnman who is a printmaker and print historian. You can compare the print techniques between etching/engraving, lithography and woodcut prints.
