Monday 30th October 2023 – 7pm
Venue: Zoom (online event only)
I plan to talk about ways in which travel has influenced my process and visual work, mainly with reference to Japan.
This would include the years since first going there in 2000 to study Mokuhanga (Japanese Woodblock Printing) with master carver/printers on Awaji Island, Kansai as part of a post earthquake regeneration residency programme headed by Keiko Kadota Director of the Nagasawa Art Park Programme when I was selected for an International Residency during 2000.
Two years later I returned to the same location on Awaji Island. This was mainly to research oriental fibres for a book entitled “Papermaking for Printmakers” published in 2006 by A&C Black, London.
I have returned to Japan several times since to attend conferences and to broaden my understanding of Japanese Washi and papermaking techniques on to places such as the Awagami Washi Kaikan Papermill on Shikoku Island during 2005 and more recently in 2017 to study with master papermaker Hisako Uchimura at her papermill in the Saitama region near Tokyo.
