Jewelry Workshop—The World of Washi: Introductory Class

events/2017-washi-jewelry-workshop-wood-beads-300px.jpg

SOLD OUT

Washi is a traditional Japanese handmade decorative paper that dates back to the seventh century. Unlike machine-made paper from wood pulp, washi is made from the inner bark of plants such as mulberry, bamboo, wisteria, and hemp. The intertwining of fibers results in paper that is strong, durable, washable, and acid-free. Its thin, smooth, soft surface can be printed with vivid colors and complex designs.

In this workshop led by Reiko Nakano, learn about the history of washi and how to apply it onto a variety of wooden shapes to create jewelry. Make a souvenir washi pendant necklace using wooden beads; in the process, learn techniques of looping and wrapping, how to make an adjustable knot, and how to lacquer your washi projects. Bring a shoebox or plastic case to hold materials, a pair of sharp scissors, and a lunch or snack.

$32 members, $40 non-members. Museum admission included. Fee for materials has been graciously covered by a grant from the City of Los Angeles, Department of Cultural Affairs. Limited to 12 participants.

This program is sold out. To be placed on a waitlist, please email visitorservices@janm.org.

9/5/17: Limited spaces remain in the washi jewelry workshop on December 16 which will be a similar class, but using plumbing hardware like washers to create jewelry. Click here to register now.

This workshop is made possible in part by a grant from the City of Los Angeles, Department of Cultural Affairs.
