Woodblock Printmaking with Artist Mona Wu

Woodblock Printmaking with Artist Mona Wu

June 29 + 30, 2011

Participants in Mona Wu’s woodblock printmaking workshop had the opportunity to try their hand at two types of prints: a simple black and white print and a three color reduction print. Inspiration for the workshop came from Weatherspoon’s exhibition: Encore: Japanese Actor Prints from the Permanent Collection.

To kick things off, we learned about traditional Japanese carving and printing techniques and were fortunate to have Dr. David Phillips from Wake Forest University, who would lecture about the prints on Thursday evening, join us in the workshop. Weatherspoon registrars, Heather Moore and Myra Scott, also brought an actual Japanese woodblock from vault to gallery for everyone to view.

Getting down to work, participants used modern techniques and tools, including the presses in the Gatewood print studio, to make their images come to life over the course of two full and inspiring days.

Visit our museum Event Photo page for images from the workshop.
