Chigiri-e Art

In these workshops, students and adults will learn the basics of Chigiri-e and the 4 different kinds of Washi paper. Chigiri-e is a traditional Japanese art using hand-dyed Japanese paper called Washi. For this art, we will tear papers into different shapes and sizes, and then glue them together to create beautiful art works. The techniques are similar to painting, except we will use papers instead of paint as our colours.

All materials, including Washi paper, rice glue, cardboard, and the different sizes of brushes will be provided.
