Making Japanese Paper experience

The word Washi comes from ‘Wa’(和)meaning Japanese and ‘Shi’(紙)meaning paper. Tesuki washi (handmade Japanese paper) was introduced from China to Japan in 610 AD by Doncho, a Buddhist monk from Korea and has since been a part of Japanese culture.

With this experience you will learn about the history and methods of Tesuki washi and use authentic tools to make your own paper.

Explore with us the traditional Washi techniques for creating decorative papers from natural fibers.

You can combine with additional experience, Shodo (Japanese Calligraphy) for an additional cost.
