Learn how to process kozo bark suitable to use in Eastern and Western style papermaking. Paper mulberry (broussonetia papyrifera) or kozo is a lovely fibre to work with; the fibres are particularly long which makes the paper strong and it can be made very thin.
The Eastern method of making uses a special mould called a sugeta which has a removable mat made of bamboo and a hinged frame. It is possible to make a stack of papers separated by only a thread. Papermakers of Victoria has a set of three sugetas, so each participant will make several sheets using the Japanese method plus some western style sheets with embedded plant material.
