With hundreds of variations of Japanese papers, from heritage washi to the inexpensive, pulp-added, machine-made papers, it can be challenging to decide what kind of paper to use for your prints. Join Lauren Pearlman Sugita, Founder & President of the Paper Connection, to discuss the versaility of Eastern & Japense paper for printmakers. Lauren has generously offered free reference swatches for the first 20 people who sign up for this webinar.
Lauren Pearlman Sugita is a cultural anthropologist, who for 30 years has been exploring and communicating the traditions of papermaking from around the world. Her interests lie in telling the story of the papermaker, as well as in paper’s functional usages and limitless artistic expressions. Lauren is committed to ensuring the art of handmade paper is preserved for future generations. Lauren’s artwork is currently on view at Galerie Le Domaine in Providence, RI in a 2-person show called Our Ephemeral World: From Plant to Paper to Print.
