Katie Baldwin first came to WSW in 2008 from Philadelphia, to work on an artist’s book, Treasure. She is a master of Mogu Hanga, a printmaking technique that she travelled to Japan to study and has taught here at WSW as part of our Summer Arts Institute. Mogu Hanga is a wood cut technique where water color is applied to the blocks so that the resulting image has a more painterly look, allowing for soft overlays of color which Katie utilizes to the hilt in her work.
Katie is back at Women’s Studio Workshop this year working a new series of prints the include both the Mogu Hanga and traditional etching. She is currently the Victor Hammer Fellow in Book Arts at Wells College in Ithaca, New York. She donated this beautiful woodblock and polymer relief print, made early this year at the Workshop, and it could be yours!
