MOKUHANGA

(woodblock print)

Mokuhanga means 'woodblock print' in Japanese. This traditional Japanese printing method emerged in the 17th century. An example of an early Japanese print is shown Right.

 

Today this technique is being explored by many contemporary printmakers. A waterbased printmaking method, mokuhanga involves planning a graphic image, transferring the outlines to one or more woodblocks, carving and printing it.
