Event Description

Join us for a one-time-only workshop on the Japanese paper art of chigiri-e, led by visiting experts from Japan’s Gifu Prefecture. In this delicate art form, Mino washi paper is gently torn into shapes and pasted on to shikishi paperboards to create beautiful watercolor-like pictures. Participants will have the opportunity to use Mino washi, a traditional paper from Gifu, which has been used for more than 1300 years in the production of craftwork such as paper lanterns and umbrellas. Chigiri-e takes advantage of Mino washi’s distinct texture and durability to create colorful, one-of-a-kind art works.
