This program is available to all artists and printmakers who wish to experience the introductory levels of mokuhanga.
In the Advanced program, designed for who has completed basic training, other than learning more about Mokuhanga and maintenance technique of printing tool Baren, it provides you 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 consolidated as professional Mokuhanga artist.
