Bringing Japanese Inspired Woodblock Printing into Your Life

Presented by: James Bier, Oversees the Japan House Tea & Dry Garden at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

The art of woodblock printing is accessible to anyone.  The introduction of Japanese prints into Western Art in the late 19th century led to new ways of expression and design.  James Bier will demonstrate the tools, materials and techniques to make a print and will show examples of prints from different periods.
