Takuji Hamanaka returns to Dublin to lead this 4-day, 20-hour
intensive hands-on workshop. Over the course of the four days you
will learn the basic techniques in the Japanese tradition of
woodblock printmaking with water-based inks. This tradition is
associated with the extraordinary lessons of design and color passed
on from the earliest Ukiyo-e masters. Led by professional artist and
printmaker Takuji Hamanaka, participants will explore all aspects of
the process: proper care and use of the carving tools, preparation
and carving the wood, color registration, use of paper, and hand
printing using the baren.

Takuji Hamanaka is a printmaker and painter. He has been trained as a
traditional Japanese woodblock printer and worked for a variety of
studios in Japan and in the U.S.  He has taught at the Center for
Book Arts in New York, NY, and at the Connecticut Graphic Arts
Center. He has been conducting printing classes out of his studio in
Brooklyn since 1995 and is currently a faculty member of the
Manhattan Graphics Center. Mr. Hamanaka's woodblock prints will be on
view in a solo exhibition in the Dublin Arts Council Gallery in
conjunction with this workshop.
