Gyotaku Fish Printing on Father’s Day

  • fish printing gyotaku fathers dayJune 15, 1:00 – 3:00 p.m., with Artist Marie Dyer and Sean Gilmore, Architect

      Gyotaku (Gyo = fish, taku = impression) was created centuries ago by the Japanese who used this as a way to make a record of fish. Gyotaku is original artwork with every fish print being a little different. Originally the print of the fish was created by coating the fish or inking a fish with hand ground ink called sumi and the paper used made with rice.

Today we can create a Gyotaku print using modern inks and paints and use paper, fabric or a t-shirt. A Gyotaku fish print would make an original and wonderful gift for Father’s Day!  Cost: $5 if you bring your own t-shirt; $10 if you buy a t-shirt.

The event takes place at The Marina at Edison Ford where you can also enjoy fresh, local seafood. All participants will receive a coupon for a FREE dessert or beverage of their choice, beginning at 11:00 a.m. at Pinchers.
