In the morning I would like to introduce you who might be interested in Japan or Washi the difference between the traditional Japanese manner and western manner of papermaking. The traditional method of Japanese papermaking, preparing Kozo bark for cooking, cleaning, beating the fiber and papermaking to drying, is different from the European way. During this short workshop you do not have time for processing plant fiber by yourself. I prepare the raw materials advance for you. In the simple demo, I introduce the real materials and this process. The materials and tools are also different. With the Japanese tools, you can have an experience to make your own special paper simply.

In the afternoon, you can learn about Moku-Hanga technique, also known as Ukiyo-e, “prints of the floating world”, a form of woodcut from Japan that became popular in Europe from the 1860s onwards. Each participant receives a set of Washi (= Japanese paper) made from the fibers of the bark of the gampi trees, of the Mitsumata bush or of the paper mulberry and Youshi (= Western paper). We try to print the woodcuts with the help of already cut plates. We do this with sumi ink as black and color ink with water-based Yamato Nori (non-toxic glue), horsehair brushes and we print with a Baren, a Japanese traditional instrument that is used instead of a printing press.
