We are sorry, but the lecture is booked out!
It was only in November 2014 that the tradition of paper-making in Japan – “Washi” (Japanese paper) – was declared an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO. To mark this occasion, the famous master of handmade paper (tesuki washi), NAITŌ Tsuneo, will give an introduction to the history and making of washi in Japan at the JDZB. This will be followed by a moderated discussion between NAITŌ Tsuneo and Gangolf ULBRICHT, who has led a workshop for 25 years making handcrafted paper at the Künstlerhaus Bethanien in Berlin and is one of the few masters of his craft in Europe.
The workshop of NAITŌ Tsuneo is located in Fujinomiya close to Mount Fuji. He has been using soft spring water to create handmade paper for calligraphy and drawings for more than 40 years. He also holds workshops abroad to introduce the techniques of traditional papermaking.
On 29 and 30 September and on 1 October 2016, Mr. NAITŌ will give a demonstration in the atrium of the German Museum of Technology in Berlin on how to make washi (at 11am and 4pm); there is no additional charge to attend the workshop apart from the entrance fee to the museum.
The Museum of Technology in Kreuzberg houses large exhibitions on shipping, aviation and railways among others, and a permanent exhibition on paper art.
