About this Event

Learn to design, cut and print beautiful woodcuts using traditional Japanese techniques with artist Alex Booker.

In his three-hour evening workshop, Alex will guide you through the print process using traditional Japanese tools, vibrant water-based inks and handmade Hosho paper to create artworks you’ll keep (or gift!) at the end of the session. Do bring along any favourite visuals (magazines, drawings, type, photos or patterns) to inspire you…
