Exploring Vintage Japanese Woodblock Designs – Caroline Simpson

Bookings closed


In this 3-day course, we will explore traditional motifs of vintage Japanese woodblock prints, using dip-dyes, spot dyes, swatches, and stained-glass techniques to replicate the image.  Choose one of three patterns adapted from vintage woodblock prints by Japanese artist Ohara Koson, 1877-1945 (PDF supplied for you to transfer to backing material of choice) — or create your own design. There are many copyright-free images that can be found online. These patterns are best worked in cuts #3 to #5.

Patterns available for you to transfer:

  •  Crows at full moon (1925 – 1936) by Ohara Koson (1877-1945).
  • Carp and fly (1900 – 1930) by Ohara Koson (1877-1945)
  • Poppies – Birds and plants (1900 – 1936) by Ohara Koson (1877-1945)
