Japanese papermaking is an ancient art cultivated over 1,300 years ago and happens to be one of the Morgan’s specialties. In this two-day workshop you will learn how to create beautiful sheets of washi and will be introduced to traditional and non-traditional processes of making Japanese paper from start to finish. Using kozo grown in the Morgan’s garden you will learn how to scrape the bark and cook and beat the fibers to form strong, translucent sheets of paper. No prior experience required.
