Overview

Learn how to make your own woodblock print at a one-hour workshop in Asakusa. This studio has decades of experience at coaching people through the process of making the traditional Japanese woodblock print, even for people without previous experience.

Woodblock printing was widely adopted in Japan during the Edo period (1603-1868) known as the Japanese traditional art of "Ukiyo-e" on a single sheet. It's similar to woodcut in Western printmaking, but it uses water-based inks (as opposed to oil-based inks) that provide a wide range of vivid colors, glazes, and transparency.

They workshop will prepare sets of carved woodblocks, pigments, brushes, moistened paper, and other necessary tools. Their friendly young print staff will then guide you through the process of pulling your own prints and assisting you. When your print is completed, you can bring your art work home as the one-of-the-kind souvenir from Japan. In the meantime, you can also watch the professional print master working on the professional art work and enjoy the beautiful exhibition displayed in the shop. Don't miss the famous Ukiyo-e "Heroes" print made by this studio!
