Beginner Mokulito (wood lithography) workshop- 1st & 2nd July

Due to high demand a second beginners, Mokulito (wood lithography) workshop was run on the 1st & 2nd July 2017.

Mokulito is an eco-friendly, inexpensive printmaking method which utilises luan, marine  or structural ply to produce prints reminiscent of wood blocks and lithographs. Discovered in Japan 15 years ago, the contemporary method was recently introduced in Queensland, Australia.

Participants worked on two print matrixes (marine ply) and drew on images using Sakura Solid Markers from Sekaido in Japan. Images were then sealed with gum arabic before printing. Participants printed these individually using ink and watercolour paints.

Although several member had difficulties with marine ply, with drawn images lifting during the inking stage possibly due to a water-proofing compound in the wood, our tutor assisted us in problem solving and we persevered with many participants producing several prints.

Many thanks to our tutor Dr Jenny Sanzaro-Nishimura for sharing her knowledge and skills with us.The intermediate workshop is scheduled for 15th & 16th July 2017.

My thanks to participants for contributing images of their work.
