Five College Consortium

Japanese Papermaking

Subject Name: 
Art Studio
Course Number: 
Mount Holyoke College
In this course, students learn the traditional practice and history of Japanese hand papermaking, while exploring contemporary applications of the method. Thin, translucent, strong paper is great for drawing and printmaking, as well as sculptural construction and paper casting. This fluidity of medium naturally encourages students to become interdisciplinary in their art making. The apparent fragility, structural strength, and surprising longevity of the material provides a foundation for philosophical investigations into the nature of creativity.
Prereq: One 200-level studio art course.
