"Over the last 45 years I have taught to hundreds of students, both Westerners and Japanese, the great art/craft of Japanese waterbased printmaking, called Mokuhanga."
Richard Steiner has been teaching mokuhanga in Kyoto for the past 45 years to a interesting variety of students, Westerners, Japanese, children, deaf adults, mice in the studio ceiling. As a Western artist who studied 10 years from a traditional Japanese teacher, Masahiko Tokumitsu, he is able to teach mokuhanga in a way that is accessible for both Japanese and Western students. For 15 years Richard has taught from his studio in the very heart of Kyoto.
You can find more information about Richard and his work on his personal website Richard Steiner's Home Page, www.richard-steiner.net
Located close to the heart of Kyoto, with easy to train and bus services, the school is convenient and easy to access. It is also ideally located to get to all of Kyoto city's facilities: art galleries, museums, shops and tourist destinations.
The new, larger studio is close to the world famous Shimogamo Shrine, near to the peaceful Kamogawa river, and is a great place to visit and study.
