Residency provides you with sufficient time to experiment with and further develop your skills of Mokuhanga in the peaceful environment of Lake Kawaguchi. This program is available to all artists and printmakers who wish to experience the introductory levels of Mokuhanga.

In the Advanced program, designed for those who have completed basic training, in addition to learning more about Mokuhanga and the maintenance techniques of the Baren printing, the program provides you with opportunity to work along with your proposed plan of work and to have your work reviewed by Mokuhanga masters both from technical and artistic points of view, so that your skill and artistic quality will be solidified as professional Mokuhanga artist. The program also contains a Japanese bookbinding workshop* to offer you the opportunity to make your own original artist book.
