I wasn’t sure what to expect. I was blown away by HOW MANY exquisite full-color (i.e., 14-color) woodblock prints they had.
I was lucky. I was given a number of personal, one-on-one tutorials in that these are indeed my friends and we collaborated, very successfully, for last year’s Concord Multicultural day. To produce a full-color print it takes 14 separate, delicately carved wood blocks. One for each color. Just think how long that takes.
The Chinese came up with such full-color printing way ahead of anybody else.
At the hands-on workshop they were doing 3- and 4-color prints. Still impressive.
This woodblock show continues into tomorrow, Wednesday, February 14, 2018.
