Learn about Japanese watermarks at a two-day workshop.
Japanese Papermaking and Watermark Techniques

Sept. 7-8, 2013, 10:00- 5:00 p.m.
Held at 1890 Bryant Street, #308
San Francisco, CA 94110

In this two-day immersive class, learn how kozo fiber, water, and formation aid come together to form sheets of paper. First, students will learn some basic techniques of nagashizuki-style sheet formation. We’ll then use contemporary tools to emulate the traditional tesuri-kako-ho, or hand-rubbing, method of creating watermarks.

Students can bring any linocuts, woodcuts, or photopolymer plates to the class to use for creating watermarks. They will leave the workshop with examples to take home as reference for future practice.
