Gyotaku: the Art of Fish Printing
Learn the Japanese art of Gyotaku. Over a hundred years ago Japanese fishermen took rubbing of the fish they caught to document their catch. The intricate beauty of the fish was captured and preserved. Today the same technique is used to make prints and decorate fabric.
Participants will view and learn the technique of Gyotaku and have the opportunity to make prints on paper.
Participants can bring in their own fabric or tee-shirts to make prints on.
Registrants will recieve additional information about supplies they may want to bring.
Workshop taught by Nora Quinlan, Director of Reference.
