AN INTRODUCTION TO JAPANESE WOODCUT

Carol wilhide justin

This study day comprises three lectures:
Beginning with a lecture on the history of
Japanese Woodcut looking at its rich cultural importance to
Japan and later the huge impact the prints had on the course
of Modern Western Art, particularly to the Impressionists
in France. Carol Justin will also bring the technique into the
present with a look at contemporary practitioners including
Rebecca Salter, President of the Royal Academy and her own
work.
In the afternoon Carol will introduce the tools and materials
and give a demonstration of Japanese woodcut printing.
There will be an opportunity at the end of the day for
participants to try printing from prepared blocks.
Carol Wilhide Justin graduated from the RCA in 2017 and
is now an artist-printmaker who teaches and specialises in
Japanese woodcut.
