Ukiyo-e (also referred to as Floating World) were produced between the 17th and the 20th centuries in Japan and featured motifs of landscapes, tales from history and the theatre.
During this workshop you will create your own original Floating World painting in the style of Ukiyo-e.
Please bring a suitable Floating World photograph that you wish to transfer into the Ukiyo-e style.
