Washi Traditional Japanese Paper Making in Saitama

合計時間 : 3 hours

What To Expect

Washi is traditional Japanese paper made with unique tesuki techniques, a manual process of producing paper using fibers of the kozo tree(paper mulberry). Tesuki washi production involves a painstaking process of selecting natural materials and manufacturing, as each sheet of washi paper offers unique character and beauty depending on its material or thickness. Washi is also known for its durability, and high quality washi paper is said to last a thousand years. In this workshop, you can experience the time-honored tesuki washi making techniques and make your own washi paper with step-by-step instructions from a seasoned washi craftsman. Our washi paper exclusively uses natural materials indigenous to Japan, which lends a rustic and warm charm to it. Enjoy the unique experience and bring your handmade washi home as a memento of your trip to Japan.

I'm a self-taught dyed washi paper artist with more than 20 years of experience. From gathering materials to dyeing, I handle the whole process of washi production. I also undertake interior decoration using the washi produced by myself.
