Gyotaku, “gyo= fish/ taku= rubbing”, is the traditional Japanese method of printing fish, a practice which dates back to the mid-1800s. This form of nature printing was used by fishermen to record their catches, but has also become an art form of its own. In this workshop, participants will use the direct approach of the art. In this approach participants will apply ink or paint onto the fish and gently press it onto paper.  Materials will be provided.
