Hanji lessons learnt .........
Three of us set off from the UAE with a single focus of sourcing out hanji papers and a wish to improve our hanji making skills through instruction and discussions with other hanji artists.
What I personally discovered was how far hanji has come from the old traditional methods of cutting and pasting to the modern laser cutting and mass production of hanji objects.

I'm well aware of the long and painstacking traditional methods of producing a hanji item but I now realise how automated this craft has become to cater for the growing demand, mainly by tourists, for these craft items.
