Dive into one of the oldest printmaking processes in the world! Join us for a step-by-step workshop, as part of Penn Museums' Making Workshop Series!

This Making Workshop event is being planned in conjunction with the recent installation and opening of our Student Exhibition on the Year of Media, «Objects Speak: Media through Time.»

As this exhibition focuses on the cross-cultural examination of how materiality and messages work to convey ideas, this workshop will highlight the ancient technique of woodblock printing and its connect with mass production.

Join us to discover the rich history of Japanese woodblock printing, as an art and form of mass communication, from University of Pennsylvania's Dr. Frank Chance. And learn the basics of tranferring image to paper, using traditional techniques, from Common Press' Matt Neff, leaving with your very own woodblock print!
