The earliest scrolls were used to record Buddhist teachings and continued to live on beside other Japanese book structures, recording and illustrating important stories. In this workshop you will learn how to prepare the required pieces, using silk, linens and washi. By the end of the day, you will have assembled the many pieces to build up a personal scroll.
