Get surprising and creative results with the Japanese print technique of Mokulito. This drawing, design and printing course combines the graphic qualities of Japanese woodblock with the tonality of stone lithography, using a wood surface instead of stone.

You’ll get an introduction to the whole process, from working on a design to transferring the design onto plywood and then producing two separate editions of your work. Sam will get you hands-on with this technique, which uses everyday non-toxic and inexpensive materials, and will equip you to investigate the process at home further.

This is not a precise medium, but with some practice, luck and experimentation, you’ll create exciting and rich textured prints.

Sam has been involved in a wide range of art and design since graduating in Fine Art from the National Gallery School. Sam currently divides his time between printmaking, painting and teaching life drawing. After studying Mokuhanga (Japanese woodblock printing) in Kyoto and making stone lithographs with master printmakers, the Mokulito process was a revelation, in how it combined elements of the two techniques.
