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.
