Helen Hiebert, from the USA – who many of us from Primrose Paper Arts follow through her various facebook groups, her website and other on-line presences – has recently returned from a trip to Japan.
Being a person with a long history and high profile in the paper making (and related activities) world, Helen has a lot of contacts throughout many countries and she was able to meet up with some of these during her trip. She has very generously shared much of her Japan trip through 2 recent on-line posts and we are awarded a glimpse into all sorts of paper related adventures she experienced whilst there. The majority of us will never visit many of the places she got to see, partly because she was invited privately and partly because we simply wouldn’t know where to start looking. So this is a great opportunity to glance into hand made paper arts in a country steeped in this tradition.
I strongly recommend sitting with a cuppa and taking the time to follow these links and learn about the paper arts she found there. She must have kept a superb log as she travelled from one place to another because each destination is supported with a bunch of photos and videos. She has also supplied many links for further exploration.
