Japanese Papermaking with Kozo - Online Independent Study [ANY TIME, ANYWHERE]]

United States

This online class is designed for individuals who are self motivated to learn Japanese papermaking in a private independent study format, without having to wait for a group event. Detailed lessons and dozens of video demonstrations are made available every few days to allow students to work at their own pace.

Participants can take this class at any time and from any location [with internet access] and learn all of the processes involved in how to make Japanese-style nagashizuki-style paper, including identifying the plant itself, harvesting, steaming, stripping and scraping off the outer bark to gain access to the beautiful inner bast fiber, cooking, hand beating, rinsing/cleaning, mixing neri (formation aid), preparing the vat and finally forming sheets of paper. These steps will be followed with pressing and drying as well as a few extra contemporary creative techniques. Along the way, you will learn a little science about the fiber to have a better understanding of the material.

Lessons and materials are available for several months to provide time to work through it all. Price includes 2 hours of private consultation [by appointment].

PAPIER-art ART-papier

Austria

In unserer Manufaktur in Mattsee, im Salzburger Seenland, fertigen wir in liebevoller Handarbeit große und kleine Kunstwerke aus Papier. Unserer Rohstoffe erhalten wir direkt aus dem eigenen Garten. Dies ermöglicht uns eine einzigartige Vielfalt an Pflanzenpapieren herstellen zu können. Bei der Verarbeitung achten wir darauf, einen möglichst kleinen ökologischen Fußabdruck zu hinterlassen, in dem wir Ressourcen sparend mit der Natur arbeiten.

Nach einer kurzen Einführung in die Papiergeschichte schöpfen Sie Papiere
im A6, A5 und A4 Format. Es werden z.B. Kräuter, frische Blüten und Blätter je nach Jahreszeit in das Papier eingearbeitet. Sie gestalten sich Ihre persönlichen Blütenpapiere. Im Anschluss besteht die Möglichkeit die im Haus befindliche Papierausstellung zu besichtigen.

In our workshop in Mattsee, in the Salzburg Lake District, we lovingly handcraft large and small works of art made of paper. We get our raw materials directly from our own garden. This enables us to produce a unique variety of plant papers. During processing, we make sure to leave the smallest possible ecological footprint by working with nature in a resource-saving manner.

After a short introduction to the history of paper, you will make paper in A6, A5 and A4 format. For example, herbs, fresh flowers and leaves are included into the paper depending on the season. You design your own personal flower paper. Afterwards you have the possibility to visit the paper exhibition in the house.

Private WASHI paper making workshop in old Japanese style house

Learn the unique natural plant sources, the processes of creation and make your special postcards with peaceful and relaxing nature sounds.

Instructor Mika Horie is a paper artist, and photographer. Two years ago, I pioneered to discover the history of wild Ganpi trees for producing Ganpi-shi, called “The king of paper” in Ishikawa, and explore the finest and northernmost point of its natural habitat. I work with spontaneity to capture the aesthetics of entire Japanese everyday lives and cultures by my daily photo-shoots, paper making and photographic printing. In my art studio “mume”, we will share Japanese familiar spaces, and the seasonally changing views of the submontane village.

Price: 5,000 JPY per person Time required: About 2 hours

I run my workshops with a maximum of three participants. Please ask if you are four or a larger family or group. The paper will be dried naturally, and sent after a few days, and will be sent free of

Van papier naar papier

Netherlands

Paper tot paper
Creating paper is fun to do and the result will make you very happy. In my studio at the Lindengracht in Amsterdam I do workshops for one day of papermaking. You first make pulp and practice creating and I show all kinds of examples. Then you go to work yourself and I help you where necessary and answer the questions that undoubtedly arise. At the end of the day you learned a lot about handmade paper and you can take a nice stack home with you.
In my studio we make paper of white and colored paper remnants.
The largest mould and deckle are A4 size.
Such a day is for a minimum and a maximum of two people and lasts from 11.00 to 16.00 o’clock and costs fifty euros per person. Children from eight years old can also participate well. Put together a duo and contact me, then we can arrange a date.

VAN PAPIER NAAR PAPIER
Papier scheppen is fijn om te doen en van het resultaat word je erg blij. In mijn atelier aan de Lindengracht in Amsterdam kun je een dag komen papier scheppen. Je gaat eerst pulp maken en het scheppen oefenen en ik laat allerlei voorbeelden zien. Dan ga je zelf aan de slag en help ik je waar nodig en beantwoord de vragen die ongetwijfeld bij je opkomen. Aan het eind van de dag heb je veel geleerd over handgeschept papier en kun je een aardig stapeltje mee naar huis nemen.
In mijn atelier maken we papier van witte en gekleurde papierresten.
De grootste schepramen zijn van A4 formaat.
Zo’n dag is voor minimaal en maximaal twee personen en duurt van elf tot vier uur en kost vijftig euro per persoon. Ook kinderen vanaf acht jaar kunnen hier goed aan deelnemen. Stel zelf een duo samen en neem contact met mij op, dan kunnen we een datum afspreken.
