Create a woodblock print in colour depicting your own London scene, inspired by the print, ‘Buckingham Palace, London, seen across Green Park’ by Makino Yoshio.
This course employs slightly different techniques to our other Japanese Woodblock Printing courses, and does not require the use of a key block.
Instead, we use a more contemporary approach to create a design as Makino Yoshio would have done. You will also learn bokashi, a technique for achieving a gradation of tone in a colour or multiple colours.
Includes a guided visit to the exhibition, Japan: Courts & Culture on view at The Queen's Gallery.
