Participants will have a chance to experience making washi with a traditional method.
At our Mitsumata model farm located at the root of Kotsu mountain, the flower buds of Mitsumata has started to blooming in the end of Feburary to early March. We will have a special workshop for this season to experience harvesting and peeling the outer bark of Mitsumata. Most of the people who know the Kozo and Mitsumata are the materials of washi; however, many of them are not aware of which part of the trees will be exact material for paper. Also, we will work on papermaking on the next day. Please join us for this special workshop to experience the papermaking from the very first step.
