 Japanese Woodblock Printing Mokuhanga: Sustainable Printmaking

Based on the principles of Japanese woodblock carving and printing (mokuhanga), this creative workshop will introduce the extensive possibilities of this low tech printing method. At the end of this 5 day workshop, participants will possess a vital toolkit of printmaking techniques that can be easily built upon or added to their individualised art practice. While wood blocks will be provided to create printing, experienced tutor Sybille will teach the basics of creating your own wood blocks to be worked on beyond the class. Materials used will be sustainable (wood, paper and water colour).

Originally from Germany, Sybille has lived in various parts of New Zealand with her family for the last 15 years. She currently resides in Hamilton. Sybille has a background of study in art and design, and after years of teaching and working—mainly in painting, drawing, murals and installations—she started working in woodcut in 2015. She studied Japanese woodcut with Roslyn Kean in Australia, Eva Pietzcker in Germany, and at Mi-Lab in Japan, with teachers such as Tuula Moilanen (Doctor of Arts) of Finland, and Chihiro Taki (Master of Arts), Michiko Hamada (Master of Fine Arts), and Ayao Shiokawa (Master of Fine Arts), all from Japan.

“I will continue my studies in traditional and contemporary mokuhanga in Japan next year, but always return from the security of this tradition to the painterly freedom of my personal practice”. Sybille
