This one day course will be an introduction to traditional Nagashizuki papermaking. Through slides and video, we will take a look at how mulberry papers were made historically in Japan. We will then process raw kozo fiber through cooking, cleaning, and hand beating to ready it for the vat. We will then focus on techniques for sheetforming, pressing, and drying sheets using traditional Japanese methods.

Thursday, March 21 from 9 am to 4 pm. There is a $25 materials fee, payable to BookArtsLA.
