Workshop / 3 sessions / $120 / Room 200 / Sat 9am–noon / Aug 15–29
Explore three different types of washi (mulberry paper) crafts to make a notebook using traditional Japanese binding techniques. For the first class, we will decorate the washi using itajime and shibori dyeing methods, as well as momi (crumpling) and tsugi (patching) techniques. In the second class, we will learn a technique called urauchi, the lining and reinforcing of decorated paper or fabric using kozo paper and wheat starch paste. For the last class, we combine our results and assemble a beautiful watoji-cho (stitched bound notebook) or ori-cho (accordion style notebook).
