washi-web

WHEN:         Monday, 20 February. 12.30pm
WHERE:       Primrose Park Arts & Craft Centre, Lower Young St, Cremorne

Keiko Ando supports the Kurotani washi craftsman association in the northern part of Kyoto Japan.

Kurotani Washi has a history dating back 800 years and is said to have its origins as a way for the defeated soldiers of the Heike Clan hiding from their pursuers in the mountains to make a living.  Since then, the village of Kurotani has been recognized as the home of traditional hand-made paper, an art that touched the majority of the villagers.

Keiko is coming to share the culture of the village with us at Primrose Paper Arts at the studio. All welcome.
