Summer 2018 – 4 day intensive workshop

August 9-12

It’s a cool rainy season in Tokyo. Asaka and I are just about recovered from the European tour in May and planning ahead.

I am teaching woodblock printmaking at Tyler school of Art in Philadelphia for the fall semester so for the remainder of 2018, no regular English classes will be scheduled.

We’ve had a lot of inquiries for classes though so we are putting on a special 4-day intensive workshop in August before I leave. The aim of this course is to teach you the whole process from start to finish so you can continue on, on your own.

If you would like to learn mokuhanga with master woodblock carver Motoharu Asaka, translated and co-taught by me, please sign up and purchase tickets via this link:
