2017 Summer Mokuhanga Print Studio Program, Whitman College
2017 Summer mokuhanga Print Studio Program
sponsored by the Whitman College Mokuhanga Center
July 31 to August 6, 2017
With artist in residency, Kitamura Shōichi, Master Carver
Come join us for an opportunity to practice what you learned at the 2016 Woodblock Print Workshop. Our inaugural “Summer Studio Program” will allow you to concentrate on a new or ongoing project for five days in August. Bring your projects, your ideas, and your tools and set up your own “Studio” in the Olin East Tea Room this summer and produce and create images with other woodblock print enthusiasts. Participants should come with a basic background in woodblock print techniques, but all levels are welcome to gather, work, discuss, and share mokuhanga ideas and techniques. You will also have a chance to watch a Japanese master carver and printer from Kyoto who will join us for a week-long residency
program. In addition to observing him work on his projects, we will schedule an hour at the end of each day to speak with and question our guest artist who will share with us his experiences and respond to specific questions with practical demonstrations.
