[Baren] Exchange #15 ...


Details of [Baren Exchange 15]
  • Medium: Traditional Japanese polychrome wood block print (hand rubbed with baren, multi-block, water color pigments, Japanese printmaking paper)
  • Theme: Moku-hanga (Japanese wood block technique -- multi-block water-color prints on washi)
  • Paper: chu-tanzaku a standard paper dimension measuring from a minimum of 15 x 5 inches (38 x 12.7 cm) to a maximum of 15 1/2 x 5 1/4 inches (39.4 x 13.3 cm). It is half of an oban sheet cut lengthwise and usually designed with the long dimension running vertically... Note: in previous exchanges the coordinators have had many problems with prints that don't fit the cases, so we emphasize - prints that do not meet the published specification will be rejected from the exchange and returned to the maker. No exceptions.
  • Paper type: washi (Japanese paper)
  • Registration period: One month starting October 1 (or until 30 participants are enrolled)
  • Work period: Three months starting November 1
  • Deadline for finished prints: February 1st, 2003
  • A page of guidelines (can we call them 'rules'?) for participants has been set up here. Please read them over before deciding whether or not to apply for participation.
(Messages from the coordinator will appear as required at the bottom of this page)
