Card-making workshop with an emphasis on Japanese washi paper quilting
1. Materials: red, blue and green washi paper; mizuhiki (knots), large matching cards and envelopes with a red deckle edge on both; other necessary supplies like glue, batting and cardstock. Scissors are supplied but participants are encouraged to bring their own.
2. Shapes: choice of square, triangle, and/or heart. Each person can make four. Examples are provided of finished cards showing four shapes in the design.
3. Japanese Background: Materials include hand silkscreened washi paper and mizuhiki cord made in Japan. Washi paper quilting is based on the traditional Japanese technique of "kime-komi" where pieces of kimono fabric and cotton batting are used to create beautiful doll pictures. Individual parts of the image are formed by making small, shaped, puffy pillows. These shapes are then pieced together.
4. Note: The project could also be framed.
