Fish printing is a technique that originated in Japan about 150 years ago. In Japanese it's called Gyotaku which translates as ‘fish running’ but it’s really a fish printing technique. It’s a way that Japanese sports fisherman's used to record (and prove) the size of their catch. In modern times, fish printing has evolved into an art form. In this course, Jane will use rubber replicas of fish. These are great to use as they don’t smell, won’t rot and are easy to store! If you would like to use a real fish, Jane will discuss briefly the additional steps you’d need to take.
