Event description

Description

Founder and owner of The Japanese Paper Place, Nancy Jacobi, will share with you her 37-year life adventure with the versatile material, through images of papermaking in Japan today and pieces by artists working in a variety of media. Nancy and The Japanese Paper Place staff have a passion for sharing traditional Japanese handmade papers with the world!

Decades after founding The Japanese Paper Place, Nancy Jacobi continues to find new outlets to express her life’s passion for one of the world’s most precious artistic resources: washi. Her 2008 endeavour, "The World Washi Summit", brought together Japanese papermakers, artists, gallery owners and distributors of our paper from around the world for a life-altering week of creative discovery. This event was the perfect expression of Nancy’s essence: the ability to mix art with business, tradition with innovation, and passion with purpose. Each subsequent year in June and throughout the year she has organized a smaller event along similar themes. In 2017 they partnered with Propeller Gallery for the In the Spirit of Indigo, hosting an exhibition using vintage indigo gampi and offering numerous workshops related to blue.
