Instructor: Mercedes Lopez

Taku-hon (stone rubbing) is one of the most ancient printmaking methods originating from China and Japan almost 2000 years ago was used to create prints of memorial texts, textured and patterned surfaces as well as 'right reading' prints of the carved stone surfaces of scripts in ancient temples. Working with Oaxacan artist Mercedes Lopez you will learn the technique of molding Japanese style paper onto an object and adding ink to the surface. This produces a print image which, when dry, keeps the texture and volume of the object. Both ways of doing Taku-hon: Kantaku (dry process) and Shittaku (wet method). Both will be covered in this workshop. Prerequisite: None
Mercedes Lopez will give an artist talk Saturday Oct 27 6:30 pm Pratt
