GLENDALE — A talk on “Ukiyo-e Woodblock Prints of Japan: Their Stories and Meanings” will be given on Sunday, Aug. 18, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Shoseian “Whispering Pine” Teahouse, Brand Library Park, 1601 W. Mountain St. in Glendale.
The colorful and intricate woodblock prints from Japan all have stories attached to them. Listen to Hollis Goodall, an expert in this art form, reveal the history and meanings attached to the art through a slide lecture and Japanese prints brought by audience members. Bring prints to share.
You will also enjoy a delicious bowl of matcha tea.
