This online class is designed for individuals who are self motivated to learn Japanese papermaking in a private independent study format, without having to wait for a group event. Detailed lessons and dozens of video demonstrations are made available every few days to allow students to work at their own pace.
Participants can take this class at any time and from any location [with internet access] and learn all of the processes involved in how to make Japanese-style nagashizuki-style paper, including identifying the plant itself, harvesting, steaming, stripping and scraping off the outer bark to gain access to the beautiful inner bast fiber, cooking, hand beating, rinsing/cleaning, mixing neri (formation aid), preparing the vat and finally forming sheets of paper. These steps will be followed with pressing and drying as well as a few extra contemporary creative techniques. Along the way, you will learn a little science about the fiber to have a better understanding of the material.
Lessons and materials are available for several months to provide time to work through it all. Price includes 2 hours of private consultation [by appointment].

Paper tot paper
Creating paper is fun to do and the result will make you very happy. In my studio at the Lindengracht in Amsterdam I do workshops for one day of papermaking. You first make pulp and practice creating and I show all kinds of examples. Then you go to work yourself and I help you where necessary and answer the questions that undoubtedly arise. At the end of the day you learned a lot about handmade paper and you can take a nice stack home with you.
In my studio we make paper of white and colored paper remnants.
The largest mould and deckle are A4 size.
Such a day is for a minimum and a maximum of two people and lasts from 11.00 to 16.00 o’clock and costs fifty euros per person. Children from eight years old can also participate well. Put together a duo and contact me, then we can arrange a date.
VAN PAPIER NAAR PAPIER
Papier scheppen is fijn om te doen en van het resultaat word je erg blij. In mijn atelier aan de Lindengracht in Amsterdam kun je een dag komen papier scheppen. Je gaat eerst pulp maken en het scheppen oefenen en ik laat allerlei voorbeelden zien. Dan ga je zelf aan de slag en help ik je waar nodig en beantwoord de vragen die ongetwijfeld bij je opkomen. Aan het eind van de dag heb je veel geleerd over handgeschept papier en kun je een aardig stapeltje mee naar huis nemen.
In mijn atelier maken we papier van witte en gekleurde papierresten.
De grootste schepramen zijn van A4 formaat.
Zo’n dag is voor minimaal en maximaal twee personen en duurt van elf tot vier uur en kost vijftig euro per persoon. Ook kinderen vanaf acht jaar kunnen hier goed aan deelnemen. Stel zelf een duo samen en neem contact met mij op, dan kunnen we een datum afspreken.
