Dong Ho Vietnam Inspired Printmaking Activity
Facilitated by Mai Nguyen-Long
Make your own print inspired by Vietnam’s Lunar New Year (Tet) woodblock printing tradition! Tet woodblock prints, each with a significant meaning, decorated the family home during this festival.
Two activities on offer:
(1) Multi-colour woodblock method using contemporary images celebrating the relationship between children and animals designed by Mai Nguyen of Ingo Vietnam;
(2) One-colour method focussing on the rat, adapted from traditional images by Australian artist Mai Nguyen-Long using a contemporary printmaking format with multi-coloured papers.
The activity table will also have an informal display of images introducing a few Dong Ho prints from the facilitator’s collection.
