Mokuhanga Course with Robin Frood

Robin Frood is coming over from Venice again this August and is offering a 3 day Mokuhanga (Ukiyoe) course August 17, 18 and 19, here in my studio at the Dove.
Here is her course description:

The Japanese woodblock printing technique, mokuhanga, which was used to great effect in the mid-nineteenth century by artists such as Hokusai and Hiroshige, uses pigments and rice starch which are applied to the woodblock with a brush and printed by hand using a bamboo pad. It is a technique that has recently seen a widespread revival due to the fact it is ecological and allows a great flexibility of approach.
This three day course will explore a range of expressive possibilities from the traditional method to more modern experimental techniques.
Course fee will be £165 which will include basic materials, paper and inks: more expensive paper will be available for students to buy if they wish.
Courses times: 10 – 4 daily
If you are interested, please fill in the form I’ve attached to this email and return it to me with a deposit of £65, payable to B J Bradshaw, at

(sorry, no form attached: this was from an email I sent. Contact me on bronbradshaw@yahoo.com/)
