Woodblock print making

Woodblock print making

Get stuck in to woodblock print making at an entertaining workshop in Tokyo.

Looking for a break from traditional sightseeing in Tokyo? Just down the road from Asakusa's Senso-ji Temple is a wonderful ukiyo-e woodblock print workshop.

Every day they hold 'print parties', an hour long hands-on experience for small groups of five people to get stuck into print making. The emphasis is on participation - no lengthy explanations or historical details - just a lot of fun, suitable for anyone, any age! An English speaking coordinator will set up four woodblock mounts and from here you'll get to splash on the ink and make your own print with plenty of time to try again and perfect the process.
