It prevails as a folk art with New Year Pictures or 年画 remaining a mainstay of Spring Festival traditions. Participants of this workshop will create prints using a variety of woodblocks.
They will then embellish their compositions with calligraphic style drawing. In reference to first secular European woodblock illustrations during the fifteenth century, the motifs will be of a botanical nature.
