Subject: Teaching What I Want to Learn
Posted by: Annie B


Way back two months ago I taught a workshop at Zea Mays Printmaking that we named "Experiments In Woodblock Printing." It was a short two-day workshop, way too short to create an edition of multi-block prints, so I decided to focus on printing techniques. I asked participants to bring a very simple design or two designs that could interact because we were only going to carve two blocks. We spent only the first 4 or 5 hours on carving. The rest of the workshop was about printing, and each participant worked with two carved blocks plus an uncarved block.

I didn't file a report about this workshop as I usually do because I didn't take any photos, but I recently got some pictures that the Zea Mays staff took, so here are some for you to see.

I demonstrated five or six basic techniques at a time, and did three series of demos during the weekend.

I wanted to share all the ways that an uncarved block can be used -- to make a solid background, to create bokashi blends, to add texture across the print, to use a stencil

In this photo you can see the two simple blocks I had carved to demonstrate with

Demonstrating a simple bokashi

I suggested that participants start by working with just one color until they began to get the feel for moku hanga

Trying out some moku hanga "wiping"

It worked! I was winging it in these demos, which I wanted to do so that participants would feel free to wing it too.
