In this workshop, we arranged the process of traditional Washi papermaking in an easier way.
You can experience making your own original washi in a post card size by re-using old Shoji (Japanese sliding door) paper in the folk houses of our museum and mixing in decorative materials such as plants.

[The washi we use]
We re-using old Shoji (Japanese sliding door) paper in the folk houses of our museum. Most of it is hosokawashi, which has listed by UNESCO as Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity, mixed with some other types.
You can feel the texture of long fibers that are typical of washi, which is different from the paper you usually use.
*The color and texture may vary because of the natural materials.

In this workshop, you can craft a kabuto, which is a helmet worn by a samurai warrior, by folding a large piece of paper (78cm×78cm). It might be a little difficult, but the helmet will look pretty cool.
You can actually wear the helmet, for the paper is large enough. The materials for decoration are included in the kit, so you can use them at home.
*The kit for crafting a kabuto is also for sales at the workshop site and our museum shop.
