Being able to learn ancient Japanese paper making traditions was an incredibly valuable experience. Whether or not you have a specific interest or application for learning Japanese papermaking, just having the opportunity to learn and process was incredibly special.

I found the hands on aspects most rewarding. I can now say I have and know how to make Japanese paper and create traditional Japanese prints, skills that aren't so common in the US.

My favorite part of this program were the artist residencies I was able to participate in, such as Awagami Paper Factory and the Mokuhanga Printmaking Artist Residency as well as the special cultural experiences such as the Kabuki Theatre performance, wonderful food, and the temples!
