[BKARTS] Workshop in Portland, Oregon



For those interested in Nian Hua (the Chinese New Year picture) or the
gocco, here's a workshop on Jan 24th, 2004, offered by the Northwest
China Council --

New Years Prints Workshop

Artists Willow Zheng and Shu-Ju Wang will team up to teach a class on
nian hua (New Years pictures) traditionally a woodblock printed image
of folk deities and auspicious symbols intended to bring families good
luck during the coming year. Willow and Shu-Ju will give a brief talk
on nian hua and will show some examples of traditional prints. Each
participant will then create and print an edition of New Year Prints
for an exchange portfolio, with everyone receiving a copy of each
print. The instructors will bring materials for inspiration, but
participants are encouraged to bring sketches or other images that they
wish to work with.

Participants will use the Gocco technique, a simple silkscreen process
invented in Japan. It is popular with adults and children alike
because of its ease of use and non-toxic materials. The oil-based ink
will stain, so participants should dress appropriately. All materials
and equipment will be supplied.

When: January 24, 10 AM-5 PM; 1 hour break
Where: NW China Council, 127 NW 3rd Ave.
Cost: $60 members, $75 non-members; $12 for materials.
To register, call 503 973-5451 or mail check payable to NWCC.
