$320 for course, paid in advance.

Internationally renowned and trained artist Saskia Van Voorn lives and works in Le Bons Bay. We are very lucky to be able to offer her Woodcut Printmaking workshop for the community right here in Akaroa.

Favouring the natural environment, Saskia specialises in woodblock printing using a technique inspired by the 18th and 19th century woodcut of Japan. Ukiyo-e (pictures of the floating world). Learn her technique of making  a detailed drawing, then using multiple woodblocks, add the skills of how to use gradation of colours to achieve depth and subtlety to make your print. 

All skill levels are welcome to come along, with a strictly limited number of students. Beginners and more experienced artists are most welcome. Saskia will work the room to give everyone one on one tuition. 

Learn from a master tutor over 4 consecutive sessions. Be quick !
