About this Workshop:

Gyotaku is derived from the Japanese words for fish (gyo) and print (taku). Before cameras, Japanese fishermen used this printing technique to document a big catch when they were out at sea: They applied ink to the fish, pressed it on newspaper, and then rinsed the fish in the water to later be eaten. Join us for a fun evening of exploring this exciting world of gyotaku—but don’t worry, we will use silicone replicas of the fishies, not real ones! 

Level: Beginner – no experience necessary
