Print London is hosting a summer program of printmaking workshops and artist residencies exploring Japanese papers “washi” as both a surface for printmaking and as a sculptural material. Programming began earlier in May with a presentation and display on the history and uses of Japanese papers, followed by a series of hands-on workshops facilitated by professional Ontario artists who work with these papers. A series of week-long artists’ residencies and a collaborative exhibition evolving at Satellite Project Space will be taking place on Wednesday, June 6th to Saturday, June 30th, following with a closing reception on Thursday, June 28th, 7-10PM.
