Washi Paper Making Experience

A new style of paper making that fits the urban lifestyle---KAMISUKI. You can experience a series of creating washi art, from preparing raw materials for paper to painting a picture without a brush.

Washi making is a Japanese traditional craft which is certified as a UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage. There are a number of places in Japan where you can make a simple washi, yet the experience offered here is quite unique and distinct as you can start from making raw materials for paper. Also, you can immerse yourself in paper making in the rich forest of Nishitama, Tokyo, while feeling the aroma of plants and refreshing breeze. 

First of all, you will batter into fibers a kozo branch whose skin is already peeled and then soaked in water. This first phase of making fibers is pretty important in the whole process of making the craft work on the day.  Moreover, you will feel the connection between the regional resources and the washi making, through loosening the fibers in the water beside the well in front of the atelier. 

In this plan, you will create an original washi art piece with a unique method of kamisuki (paper making), without using a brush. You will paint a picture by pouring colored kozo fibers into a string-framed mold.  Even a child can draw a solid and colorful picture with warmth. Only by compiling colored paper fibers in layers, a unique art work with various color gradations will be completed. Why not create a distinct art work showing your originality? Of course, you can take home your completed piece of work. Let’s experience a unique combination of the traditional method and a modern twist.
