Study master examples of Japanese woodblock printing before making your own black and white print. Then, learn to make a Japanese folded screen on which you can mount and display your print.

This is a rare chance to learn how to make a Japanese folded screen, including how to make paper hinges. You will also be guided in the process of how to paste and mount your print for display.

The screen making and woodblock printmaking will run parallel as there is a lot of time needed for drying.
