Explore the art of mokuhanga, a traditional Japanese woodblock printing technique on our one day workshop.

The Japanese woodcut relief printing process uses water-based inks and is a great, non-toxic method of printmaking without the need for a press.

Learn to carve your own design into a block and print your own small edition of A5 prints to take home. You’ll be guided through the process in a step by step way in our professional print studio.
