Peranakan Peony printing @Toa Payoh studio

Another fun workshop in Japanese Woodblock with beautiful work produced by first-time printers! I'm always amazed by the unique look of the end prints - truly customised through each student's unique carving and printing technique. Fabulous gifts just in time for Christmas! And a lovely way to spend some time on oneself - art meditation?
