Yolo Basin Foundation invites members of the community to sign up for a gyotaku workshop with Davis resident Chris Dewees from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, March 9.

Gyotaku is traditional fish printing started by Japanese fishermen to record their catch. Dewees, a longtime fish biologist, has been a devotee of gyotaku since his graduate student days in the 1960s. He has gained worldwide recognition for his talents with shows all over the world, and he enjoys teaching others this ancient art.

The workshop is part of the Yolo Basin Foundation’s fundraising series, a “Gaggle of Gatherings,” which consists of a variety of field trips, classes and workshops offered throughout the year. The fish printing workshop costs $65 per person and includes a light lunch. No previous experience is necessary, and materials, including the fish, will be provided. All proceeds will go to the Yolo Basin Foundation’s wetlands education programs.

To reserve a spot at the workshop, go to the website at www.yolobasin.org and click on “Gaggle of Gatherings” or call the Yolo Basin Foundation at 530-757-3780.

Yolo Basin is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the appreciation and stewardship of wetlands and wildlife through education and innovative partnerships.
