Gyotaku-Fish Printing

July 13, 2024

Schedule: 1-4pm Sat

Instructor: Cathy Kitto

Registration Deadline: July 1

Only 1 left in stock

Description

There’s the art of fishing, and the art of fish printing. Bring your catch (or use ours) and learn this fascinating Japanese technique called Gyotaku for applying ink to an intact fish and printing onto paper or fabric. Cathy will show you how to prepare the fish, print, and paint in the expressive eyeball. You’ll go home with several prints, and each time you ink the fish, you can print several across your paper, resulting in a school of fish. If you bring your own fish, it will be best to freeze it, unless very freshly caught. If you happen to encounter one of those much-maligned Asian carp, catching and printing it is a good deed. You may also bring a t-shirt to print on.

Class size 8

Student Supply List Optional: a t-shirt? a fish?

  • Materials Fee $10

This workshop requires a Woodlanders Day Fee. Learn more here.
