About this Workshop:

Join us for a fun evening of gyotaku fish printing – but don’t worry, we will use silicone replicas of the fishies, not real ones! The term 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 be eaten. 

Level: Beginner – no experience necessary
