Head to the woodblock studio in Tokyo’s Asakusa neighborhood where you’ll take your session, picking between a range of morning and afternoon start times. Over the course of your class, you’ll learn the skills of ‘Ukiyo-e,’ a traditional woodblock print style that dates to Japan’s Edo era (1603-1868).
During your lesson you’ll follow the lead of the studio’s helpful instructors as they explain the intricacies of creating your own woodblock print masterpiece. You’ll prepare a carved woodblock with a series of water-based pigments and brushes, applying your selections to a moistened paper.
As you work on your personal masterpiece, make sure to also take a look at the projects currently underway by the shop’s professional woodblock print master, and admire the prints on display in the shop’s exhibition space. You’ll leave class with a one-of-a-kind woodblock artwork commemorating your experience.
