Tutor: Jan Coveney

Participants will acquire a good knowledge of what Hanji paper and craft is, its origins, strengths and practicalities as well as discovering a completely new craft and set of skills.   (They may then wish to compare it with the papers they are currently making)

Step by step instructions are provided to students during the 3-day workshop and they will be given a detailed worksheet to take home.
