Learn to make distinctive Japanese

decorative papers to use in your books,

seasonal cards and decorations, or as unique

 

artworks in and of themselves. In this hands-

on workshop, we will learn about sekkazome,

patterns. Also known as orizomegami, this

fun and colorful technique can be done
