Fine Arts Friday Workshop: Japanese Paper Making, Session 2
Friday, October 18, 2013 - 12:00pm - 3:00pm
The second of a two-part Japanese paper making workshop taught by artist Mami Takahashi.
Participants will be introduced to traditional and contemporary Japanese paper making techniques with natural fibers such as mulberry, cotton and wood pulp. Students will incorporate gold leaf, objects from nature and everyday materials in their paper, alongside other decorative methods. Through this workshop, participants will expand their knowledge of Japanese paper making and learn how it can be used within a wide range of art practices such as painting, sculpture and collage.
Mami Takahashi is trained as a traditional Japanese painter. Her work explores self-identity within different cultural contexts. Takahashi’s work attempts to bridge the gap between traditional Japanese culture and contemporary society. Her paintings, mixed media, sculptures, video and performance-based works evoke the sense of alienation, isolation and detachment that occurs when one is between cultures.
