[WORKSHOP] Woodcut Printmaking by @rico_leong
We're super excited to have Rico Leong back again sharing his fantastic woodcut printmaking technique to our community in Phnom Penh. Last year, all his workshop sessions were full house. So, book yours quick yo!
Rico is a Borneo-born illustrator venturing into woodcut as a medium of expression. Shifting gears from illustration, Rico translates his work through woodcarving and curating woodcut workshops to share iwith others on the traditional process of woodcut printing on both fabric and rice paper. Many of his illustrations can be found as cover art for Malaysian musicians in the punk scene, which is a subculture that holds an important position for what he stands for alongside personal experiences and opinions.
Rico will be conducting a 3-hour workshop session to share what goes into the process of woodblock printing. There will also be detailed demonstrations to guide participants each step along the way, from woodblock to print. Participants will be introduced to woodcarving tools and explore various carving techniques, ink impression, and the traditional way of printing on fabric.
There will be only 3 sessions each limited to 10 participants:
1 session: 29 September (10am-1pm)
2 session: 29 September (3-6pm)
3 session: 1 October (6-9pm)
