Awagami International Miniprint Exhibition Japan

I’ve been wanting to participate in this for a few years now as I love printing on wash paper and when you register they send you a sample pack, which was very useful in learning more about the different types of washi. Printing a single woodblock by hand I found the Okawara Select and Inbe thin to give the best results in terms of surface texture.

This exhibition is also a truly global retrospective and embodies with truly international community of printmakers with over 1,800 prints from 58 countries. You can view a video of the exhibition on the Awagami Factory Facebook page

This woodblock was carved in March 2020 at the beginning of the pandemic when I thought COVID-19 was just a storm in a teacup. Shortly after I had to flee from Florence back to Aotearoa, where I’m still weathering the storm!
