This Summer West Yorkshire Print Workshop celebrates Japan. Inspired by our Studio Technician travelling to the Mokuhanga Innovation Laboratory (Mi-Lab), we have invited artists from across the globe to submit work which employs traditional Japanese printmaking techniques or is inspired by Japanese culture. 27 artists from Japan, UK, Ireland, Italy, Portugal, USA and Australia are exhibiting a fantastic range of art works, exploring a variety of subject matter, imagery and printmaking techniques; including mokulito, gyotaku, mokuhanga, Japanese woodcut, etching, linocut, letterpress and book-works.

Plus a whole range of print activities will be running throughout the show that you can get involved in! Find out more in the link below-
