Japanese Washi - Making Paper and Books

About Japanese Washi - Making Paper and Books

The first day is designed to be an introductory workshop with hands-on experience of making paper from a variety of plant fibres like Abaca, N.Z. Flax and Cotton and then with further focus on processing beautiful Japanese Kozo, Gampi and Mitsumata.

The following day you will learn Japanese four-hole binding techniques using traditional sewing patterns and fine papers. Participants will make a collection of four hand-stitched books to take home along with their handmade paper from the previous day. At the end of this course you will have gained knowledge of the papermaking process, sheet forming experience, further creative possibilities with paper and have a selection of beautiful handmade papers as well as having learned to bind Japanese Four-hole books.

All materials and equipment will be provided, however, please bring some decorative items such as small leaves, threads, small drawings / images or text to individualise your outcomes. Essentially, please wear good, non-slip footwear throughout the day @ PULP.

PULP is a specialised workspace dedicated to paper art and books - it is easy to access and a comfortable space to work in. Tea and coffee will be provided but participants are asked to bring their own packed lunch or there are shops around 8mins walk from PULP. Local free parking is available and this space is suitable for wheelchair users. Beginners are very welcome.

Workshop takes place 10am - 4pm (4.30 clear up) on Saturday + Sunday 14th + 15th September 2019.
