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, and wisteria, and hemp. The intertwining of fibers results in a 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, make your own long lariat necklace with irregular shaped wooden beads, commercially made adornments, and bronze filigree connectors. The second project will be matching earrings.

Please bring your own beading board and jewelry-making tools, if possible. If not, all materials are supplied. Also bring a snack, and a desire to learn. $64 members, $80 non-members, plus $25 materials fee due to the instructor at the beginning of class (cash only). Museum admission included. Limited to 12 participants.
