At Toronto’s Japanese Paper Place on Tuesday, 5 October from 7 -9 PM, Hiroko Karuno, a shifu artist, will give a talk and short demonstration on technique. The Japanese Paper Place’s press release is below:
WASHI STAR TALK WITH HIROKO KARUNO
Tues. October 5 7:00 – 9:00
Admission by PWYC Donation to the Ontario Crafts Council
Hiroko’s medium, as many will know, is shifu cut, spun and woven kozo paper – and she is one of the few people in the world who have embraced and developed interest in this almost extinct art form. Tonight’s presentation will be a visual journey of a unique exhibition held this year in a historic private home in Nara, in which a single monumental piece of Hiroko’s shifu with both warp and weft of kozo – was displayed. It will be followed by a short mezmerizing demonstration by the artist. Join us for this special Washi Star night, to end with refreshments and conversation.
