Japanese Fish Printing.

July 15th

1.30-4.00pm

In the olden days (when the world was in black and white) before computers and cameras. Japanese fishermen who wanted to record their catch took rice paper and non-toxic inks out with them. They would ink up their catch and take a print from it, they’d then wash the fish and sell it at market. This is called Gyotaki.

In this workshop we will use a variety of fish and other sea creatures and combine them with a range of different papers to discover some truly beautiful prints. There will also be the opportunity to print on silk . These make gorgeous note book covers or equally look great framed.

All fish eyes have been removed so they won’t be staring up at you whilst being rubbed. Gloves will be provided for the squeamish.

Please note times.

Workshop Cost £35.
