Lecture Choices:

  • The History of Ukiyo-e: Daryl presents the fascinating history of the Ukiyo-e genre, which flourished in the 17th through 19th centuries. Learn how the Japanese took the craft of woodcarving and transformed how we receive information through print.
  • Japonisme and Impressionism: During the mid to late 19th century, while Japanese art was becoming more European, the West embraced Japanese prints in a movement called Japonisme. Seeking an alternative style to the rigid methodologies of the time, many artists, including Van Gogh, Degas and Manet drew inspiration from the ukiyo-e masters, breathing new life into the Impressionist movement.
  • Development of Shin hanga: In a movement so heavily influenced by the westernization of Japan, artists such as Hasui, showed a longing and appreciation for the ways of old. Ukiyo-e traditions and European influences are melded together, to express a fascinating interplay between East and West.
  • The Process of Woodblock Printmaking: A Japanese woodblock print is said to be the work of the artist, but in truth it is the joint effort of the ‘ukiyo-e quartet’—the artist, engraver, printer and publisher. Explore the tools, materials and painstaking processes of this ancient art form.

Presentation & Demonstration

Choose any of the lecture choices, followed by a live demonstration of the printmaking process, as Daryl pulls one of her limited edition, multi block prints, from start to completion. Adult beverages and snacks provided.
