// ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP // * Er is ook informatie in het Nederlands na het Engels.
Printmaking workshop on the Japanese tradition of Baren printing on Washi (Japanese paper) accompanied by a lecture and demonstration presented by the Japanese printmaker and papermaker, Yuriko Miyoshi.

The participants will be introduced to the wonders of the Japanese woodcut technique and experience the actual printing process using natural materials and non-toxic water-based inks. The printed end product is also known as Ukiyo-e (浮世絵).
Woodcut printing is a sustainable printing technique, and we are happy to show you the possibilities of woodcut printing by exploring its history, materials and tools. We will also take a look through the actual Japanese woodcut printed books with amazing details, dating back from the 19c (Meiji – Taisho era).

MOKU-HANGA (木版画) is the Japanese traditional woodcut technique, also known as Ukiyo-e printing. An artist draws the design, the carver carves the woodblocks and the printer prints the blocks in relief with water-based ink using starch-based glue (Yamato nori). Printing is not done by a press, but with hand using Baren (馬連) which is a traditional printing disc used for the Woodcut. Washi, the Japanese paper is used for the printing.

-------------------- in dutch
Een introductieworkshop voor de Moku-Hanga techniek, ook bekend als Ukiyo-e 浮世絵, "prenten van de vlietende wereld" is een vorm van houtsnede uit Japan die vanaf de jaren 1860 ook in Europa populair werd. Er zijn drie stappen in het maakproces van Ukiyo-e: E-shi 絵師 (de kunstenaar), Hori-shi 彫師 (de houtsnijder) en Suri-shi 摺師 (de drukker).

Wij beginnen eerst met een presentatie over de japanse houtsnede, het maakproces, de materialen en de gereedschappen. Je krijgt ook originele historische japanse houtsneden te zien. Vervolgens gaan wij in deze workshop met behulp van al gesneden platen als Suri-shi 摺師 (de drukker) proberen de houtsneden met mooie japanse klassieke ontwerpen af te drukken. Dat doen we met kleurinkt met Yamato Nori (niet-toxische lijm) op waterbasis, paardenharen borstels en op japans papier met een Baren. Een Baren is een japans traditioneel instrument dat wordt gebruikt in plaats van een drukpers. Dit alles samen is het meest geschikt voor deze soort drukwerk.

Na afloop van de workshop kan iedereen zijn of haar eigen, zelfgedrukte prenten op Japans papier meenemen.
