Sekishu Washi (a traditional Japanese paper) has been produced by hand for over 1400 years on the west coast of Japan in what is now Shimane (formerly Sekishu) Prefecture. This labour- intensive tradition, using renewable 100% Japanese kozo bark, has been designated by UNESCO as an Intangible Cultural Property and its continuity severely threatened for many reasons.
The JPP and Propeller Art Gallery invite artists to explore the multiple qualities of Sekishu Washi with an open mind and playful spirit. See what comes out of this beautiful and receptive surface when reshaped, dyed, painted, drawn or printed on!
