In this lesson from AskAsia, students become familiar with the traditional techniques of woodblock printing developed in China. They design a woodblock that relays a message they find important and then make a print of their message to share with classmates. This lesson can be altered for lower grade students. This resource is part of AskAsia's special feature titled "Visible Traces."
