"Terry is a dedicated and thoroughly organised practitioner and teacher. All our participants were very pleased with the process and outcome.. Highly recommended for an insight into this wonderful technique..."

- Edith May, Firestation Print Studio Manager, Armidale, Victoria  October 2014

 

I am keen to work with existing organisations or individuals to build interest and participation in mokuhanga throughout Australia. Working together allows the Australian Mokuhanga School to reach a wider audience and your organisation to generate member engagement and income.

 

Since starting the school in June 2014, we have succesfully run courses with a range of organisations such as The Victorian Art Society, Firestation Print Studio, Ballarat Art Gallery, Impress Print Studio, USQ Artworx, F-Project (Warrnambool), East Bentleigh Art Society, Artists Society of Canberra and groups of Individuals. Participants have both enjoyed the workshops and gained skills at the same time organisations have provided exciting opportunities and generated income for themselves.

 

I am available to teach a variety of workshops - intensive or longer term, to give lectures or demonstrations, or run weekly classes.

To contact me and let me know what kind of event you would like to stage use the form here.

 

I look forward to hearing from you!

What is Mokuhanga?

Mokuhanga is the traditional water based printing technique, originating in China and perfected in Japan.

A print is created through design, carving blocks for each colour, then printing each colour successively until the print edition is completed.

 

Mokuhanga is the Japanese word for wood block print. The Japanese characters 木版画 are 木 wood, 版 block and 画 picture.

 

In Japan its meaning is the print itself, but in general contemporary use it means both the print and the technique. Mokuhanga is growing in popularity worldwide as learning becomes more accessible to people outside of Japan.

Mokuhanga is chemical free, non-toxic, environmentally friendly, uses relatively simple hand tools and equipment and requires little space to produce beautiful work. The natural beauty of the materials - wood, pigment and hand-made paper are all retained and enhance each other. A great choice for Artists or any creative person!
