From the organizers:

You are invited to the workshop Japanese Woodblock Prints – Intro to Ukiyo-e starting on 09 Sep 2019.

Ukiyo-e is a traditional Japanese technique used in printmaking in the beginning of the 16th century. During the Edo era, Ukiyo-e prints depict the luxurious life of Japanese noblemen. One notable ukiyo-e print is Hokusai’s Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji.

Unlike European woodblock printing techniques, Ukiyo-e uses natural materials thus creating a watercolor-like effect on the woodblock prints. Furthermore, with accurate alignment technique, the prints can have many different color layers and gradations.
