In this one-day class, students will explore a range of traditional methods for Japanese paper decoration including brush dyeing with natural dyes, shibori, and momigami techniques. We will work with clove and kakishibu (persimmon tannin) dyes and will also learn how to process a 1-2-3 indigo vat for dip dyeing.

Additionally, we will work with a collection of carved blocks to burnish and emboss papers with traditional patterns. Students can expect to leave with a pile of decorated papers for personal use or for use in the Japanese bookbinding class taking place the following day, Saturday, May 23.

Japanese Paper Decoration: Friday, May 22 from 9 am to 4 pm. $155 course fee plus a $40 materials fee.

* This one day class can be taken as a stand alone or as part of the 4-day Japanese Book Arts Intensive.
