Description: [This eBook is not a 'Mokuhankan' production, but in the interest of helping spread the word about this craft, we are happy to act as a provider for this very useful item.]

Terry McKenna is an Australian woodblock printmaker living in Karuizawa Japan, where he runs the 'Karuizawa Mokuhanga School', a place where training in the Japanese woodblock techniques is available to visitors from around the world (and online). Terry has developed a comprehensive curriculum to guide students through the process, and this eBook is adapted from the version he has created for his online workshops.

This book offers a thorough coverage of the Japanese woodblock technique as practiced in the 21st century. Everything the student needs to know is covered, from gathering the tools and materials, preparing suitable designs, and of course moving through the actual process of making the prints. There are many, many illustrations - all accompanied by full explanations of every step along the way.

The book runs some 160+ pages, and Terry has prepared a 'sampler' of a dozen or so pages, to give you a taste of the full content: [download - 5.9 Mb].

We are very happy to assist Terry in 'getting the word out' by making his book available from our online shop. Who knows … perhaps among the people who get started with this text will be somebody who might become ready to join our Mokuhankan printing team somewhere down the line!

[Note: as with all the eBooks in this catalogue, after purchase you will be sent a personalized link where you can download the book in .pdf format. You will not receive a physical book.]
