Mokulito: Japanese Wood Lithography

Duration: Weekend course
Dates: Sat 28 Sep 10:30 - Sun 29 Sep 2024 17:30
Location: Print Studio

Learn how to make prints using this form of lithography developed in Japan.

Mokulito is a form of lithography developed in the 1970s, which replaces the stone matrix surface with wood. The term Mokulito derives from the Japanese words ‘Moku’ meaning wood and ‘Rito’ meaning Lithography. 

Learn how to make prints using this wonderful process, that infuses the unique grain of the wood matrix along with hand painted marks and incisions of the artist.

Susannah has been fantastic – very experienced, humble, easy to talk to, and has enabled me as a total novice to experiment and have fun!

Excellent course, thoroughly enjoyed. Learned a new process, which I would like to experiment more with. Good course length, relaxed pace and lots of prints produced.
