"Welcome to the Arts & Crafts Press! Here at my studio in Kamakura, Japan, I am passionate about making traditional blockprints. My colorful limited-edition woodblock prints are made using the multiple hand-carved blocks.

In my search for ecological, kinder way of printing, I decided to focus on Japanese woodblock printing. I have always loved collaborating with other craftspeople and it brings me great joy now to work with artisans in Japan who are still using the time-tested technics, materials, and tools. 

"We print, because we care and love our friends, family, and environs. So why not take it one step further and print kinder to ourselves and our earth?"     --Yoshiko Yamamoto
