Hanji paintings

Here is a series of paintings displayed on the walls of the Hanji paper factory in Andong, Korea. It shows how paper has been made for centuries.

I love the simplicity of the paintings and the fact that the colourings are so subtle. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

Collecting the branches of the mulberry trees

Removing the bark
Burning the bark

Boiling the bark fibres and hanging it out to dry

Washing the fibres in the river

Mixing the fibres with water and glue

Making thin layers of fibre on the racks

Putting rocks on the layers of paper to get the moisture out

Rolling the paper
