Taku-hon is possibly the earliest method of printmaking. Originating in China, Taku-hon is similar to a brass rubbing that creates hyper-detailed prints that vary in texture and intensity.

This one-day workshop will introduce students to the Taku-hon printmaking method. Prints are made by placing dampened Japanese paper over a textured surface which is then dabbed by an inked-up silk tampo. Each student will make their own silk tampo, giving them the tools to continue creating prints at home.

This is an exciting and immediate process that students will be able to use to create a unique series of prints. The workshop is suitable for both beginners and those with experience.
