About the How to Ink:

How To Ink is a verbalisation of the Chinese characters 凹凸印 (Āo Tú Yìn), a style of printmaking which works on a yin-and-yang principle of utilising positive and negative moulds to produce certain impressions on paper.

How To Ink translates to our philosophy; only by embracing the good and bad, can we create what’s truly ours.

Printmaking and handicraft exemplifies our philosophy.

Our mantra is to bring joy of printmaking to everyone.
By learning the craft, we would then share by passing down our knowledge.

It is a humble craft that is easily accessible, an activity that is free and experimental for all.

The focus of our workshop is not about transferring ink onto paper but to teach you the essentials and processes behind the print, from refining the design draft to understanding which tools you’ll need.

Workshops will require plenty of hands-on work, training you to be meticulous with the tiniest and vital details. And, at same time, cultivate mindfulness and awareness during the process of crafting your final piece.

During the course of the workshop, participants have absolute expression of creativity. As they learn the ropes of printmaking, participants can feel free to apply other techniques or ideas that they have. Thus, each participant will produce a unique outcome by the end of the workshop.

Our current printmaking activities include:

  • Silkscreen Printing

  • Linocutting

  • Marbling

  • Monoprinting

  • Paper-making
