Ukiyo-e Printing Demonstration and Workshop with Ogawa Nobuto

UCLA William Andrews Clark Memorial Library
In conjunction with the Center & Clark’s 2023-24 Core Program, "Open Edo: Diverse, Ecological, and Global Perspectives on Japanese Art, 1603–1868," we are pleased to collaborate with UKIYO-E PROJECT to present a printing demonstration and workshop focused on ukiyo-e, a centuries-old style of art that flourished in the Edo period. These traditional Japanese woodblock prints feature multiple colors and are printed on fine washi paper.
The demonstration and workshop will be led by printer Ogawa Nobuto. Born in 1990 in Tokyo, Ogawa is part of a family of printers dating back to the Edo period. He learned the craft from his master, who was once his grandfather’s disciple.
