Further Japanese Woodblock with Ralph Kiggell ARE RK

Artist-printmaker Ralph Kiggell offers an extension workshop for students who may already have studied the fundamentals of Japanese water-based woodblock print-ing. As this is only a one-day workshop, you will create a three-colour reduction print, approximately A4 size, using one block only. The workshop will encourage you to experiment with colour, explore a wider variety of Japanese papers. It will also be an opportunity to hone your techniques and extend your knowledge of how to both control and vary the outcomes of this sensitive printmaking method.

Course structure
• Look at examples of Ralph’s original work.
• Introduction to the three colour reduction printing technique.
• Cut and print each of your layers by hand with a baren.
• Opportunity to ask questions on developing your printmaking and the tech-nique.
• Embrace discovery and experimentation along the way!

Experience level
Some previous experience is necessary, or attending the earlier 2 day course.
