Class Type: 

Sunday, August 27, 2017
OUTDOORS - North Lawn

Korean papermaking has been in motion for nearly two thousand years. In this all-day workshop, learn how to make hanji, one of the most versatile papers for artists, designers, and inventors. Under the direction of artist Aimee Lee, students will learn how to make paper in the Korean papermaking tradition using fibers they’ll process by hand. Students will leave with handmade paper as well as the knowledge of how to continue making it on their own and an appreciation for the labor it takes to create paper from scratch. 

Aimee Lee is an artist, papermaker, writer, and the leading hanji researcher and practitioner in the United States. (BA, Oberlin College; MFA, Columbia College Chicago). Her Fulbright research on Korean paper led to her award-winning book, Hanji Unfurled (The Legacy Press) and the first-ever American hanji studio, located in Cleveland, Ohio. She teaches, lectures, exhibits, and is collected internationally.
