I spent the weekend doing a mokuhanga workshop with the wonderful Ros Kean. In a really packed few days we learned a basic printing technique, and lots of other things, like how to make a carrier brush, how to maintain your cutting tools, and lots of information about pigments and papers.
I really enjoyed the quiet process of making things from the natural materials around the studio, and the ceremony of attending to the tools. Perhaps I won’t pursue Mokuhanga itself, who knows how it will fit into my practice?
