Workpedia Japan focuses on the lives of foreign nationals working in Japan. This time, we visit the Tokyo workshop of Canadian David Bull. He is a craftsman who produces Japanese woodblock prints with his team of artisans following a time-honored method. (This program was broadcast on June 30, 2022.)
Seventy-year-old David Bull is a woodblock print maker. He fell in love with Japanese woodblock prints and decided to devote his life to them.
David's workshop produces original woodblock prints.
Using various kinds of chisels, David carves woodblocks for making the prints.
