It was a treat to be at the Red and Yellow Creative School of Business, today, to introduce the 1st year Illustration students to the Mokuhanga printing process. There was much interest in the materials and tools I use as well as the printing process itself. ‘Process’ is something they will be unpacking in their project brief. It was wonderful to inspire them to think about print and the repetitive act of editioning in an unusual technique.
Many thanks to their lecturer Stephanie Simpson for the chance to showcase the technique. I wish them all the best with the project ahead!
Following the success and interest in the Mokuhanga Demonstrations at Artist Proof Studios, I will be giving another demonstration of the ancient Japanese technique on 10 May at the Artist Proof pop up space on Castle Street, Cape Town.
