Workshop by Artist GOTOU Hidehiko:
On October 22, the last day of the Print Show at Daikanyama, GOTOU Hidehiko, a long-time CWAJ artist, will hold a workshop on baren, an essential tool for mokuhanga woodblock print making. He will demonstrate how to make, care for and print with the baren. He was born in Kokura, Fukukoka Prefecture in 1953, and studied printing and the baren under GOSHO Kikuo, a printmaker, and UCHIKAWA Matashiro, an ukiyo-e printer. In 2012, he started BAREN-JUKU, a baren class in Ginza, while also making mokuhanga as an artist. The workshop will start from 14:00 in the afternoon at the Forum. Let’s expand our knowledge about baren by participating in this workshop! Please write to email@example.com for inquiries.
Last but far from least, the Print Show Special Exhibit at Tokyo American Club (TAC) is being held at Frederick Harris Gallery until October 2. If you haven’t visited the exhibit, please write to PSSE@cwaj.org soon.
