Join me while I push the boundaries of my Japanese woodblock printing and experiment with a new print. There will be lots of help and tips for learning throughout this series as you watch one of my woodblock prints come to life. Remember to check on the homepage for details of my Friday night livestreams if you’d like to join me for Q&A and printmaking chat.
