Woodblock Printing and Moku Hanga Workshop
9:00am, 18 Feb 2013 - 4:00pm, 13 Jun 2013
Before the phenomenon of the computer and mechanical press, prints were produced in another way.
Come to the South of France to learn and experience an age-old craft used by Durer in Europe and which Hokusai and Hiroshige perfected in Japan, and in which van Gogh and Lautrec found inspiration.
For the first two weeks in June 2013 we have two consecutive workshops. The first is a four-day mono and multi-colour woodblock printing workshop, the second is a four-day workshop in Japanese-style printing (Moku Hanga).

Manuka etching press
21 Aug 2008
One of my
projects during the last two years has been establishing a printing studio here
in our new location. I ordered a printing press from Manuka machines in
Christchurch, New Zealand. This beautifully crafted press has been set up in
the atelier. A lot of
work has yet to be carried out but we have had some fun here already. Apart
from this Manuka etching press, there is also the small hydraulic press for
small size etchings and another etching press given to me by a friendly local.
This one still needs some restoration. Please
check out this link to view the progress in the atelier and this link to a blog
about what is going on.

Wood cuts, designing, carving, printing
5 Jul 2006
At the core of this website is, of course, the creation of wood cut prints. It's finding the time to do it which makes it interesting. Do I need to say more?
Next wood cut will be "pruning the vineyard" , it will take a while, but I will keep posting.
