In this workshop, students will be introduced to the process of making Japanese paper. Japanese paper, often incorrectly referred to as rice paper, is known for its great strength while appearing delicate and gossamer-thin. In this workshop, students will learn the basics of preparing their own fiber, hand beating, and forming sheets in the traditional nagashizuki method.
