Chigiri-e is a Japanese art form that uses washi paper to create a 'painting'. Washi (known as rice paper) of varying colours, weights and textures are torn in small pieces to create an image that looks very much like a watercolour painting! Participants will learn about washi and why only it can be used, create their own 'painting' and frame it in a traditional Japanese style.
