The art of making thread and using it to weave cloth dates back to 7th century Japan. In this class students prepare Japanese papers to make shifu; twist the paper into thread using a rough brick, hand held spindles and spinning wheels; and finally weave a small piece of cloth on a simple card loom from these hand spun threads. Participants also explore coloring on the paper and discuss contemporary uses for paper thread such as book binding, knitting, and weaving. A supply fee is payable to the instructor, and varies depending on the materials used.
