Japanese woodcut techniques date back to the 8th century when printing methods were shared by Chinese Buddhist temples. The traditional tools and techniques have not changed since then and are now taught worldwide. Quick to learn but difficult to master, Japanese Woodcut Printmaking is a safe and economical way to make unique handmade works of art. You’ll leave class with a block you carved, prints you printed, and the knowledge you need to practice at home. This relief printing technique is done entirely by hand and with minimal tools; this makes it possible to complete prints from start to finish nearly anywhere!

Timothy works sculpturally with steel and kinetic technologies on large-scale installations, and illustrate using mixed drawing and printmaking media. As a part of his process, Timothy invents and uses systems as a means of commenting on the complicated relationships within modern society. By mixing and merging systems (from a series of basic rules to complex mechanical structures) in a variety of media, their symbiosis and antagonisms surface in the emotional and contemplative responses of viewers.
