This advanced course will have a different format to introductory courses.

Day one:
Introduction to new print techniques and effects, and practical practice (printing)
Japanese Papers and ways of managing printing problems. Tool sharpening - essential for producing accurate work
Day two:
Create a design that incorporates print effects learned on day 1.
Carve a key block (lines), refine understanding of carving and wood, traditional transfer technique - pasting print from the key block for subsequent colours.

These are some of the key skills to produce more complex and visually interesting works, and build your ability to produce great mokuhanga!
