‘The papers have a life of their own’
Elaine Cooper is a Master Papermaker who has compiled this exquisite collection of rare and original handmade papers that uniquely chart the history and development of Japanese papermaking.
A visually stunning and informative exhibition which documents the art and history of washi. It includes a most comprehensive and diverse collection of papers, from many areas and epochs of Japan. Many of the samples are now rare and no longer manufactured. The papers demonstrate the continuing development of the traditional art and craft of Japanese papermaking through the centuries. These works will be shown together for the first time at this event.
