BY REBECCA PRY
@ VOL 1 ON MAR 25, 2017

"They gave us certificates of mastering the art of paper making but then they quickly clarified that we didn't actually master it because it takes years to do so..."

In "Paper Making in Japan" from PechaKucha Night Warwick Vol. 1, Rebecca Pry shares her story of how she learned to make traditional Japanese paper, washi, while at the Awagami paper making factory in Tokushima, Japan.

Rebecca is a young artist living and working in Warwick, NY. Her work is heavily inspired by the patterns and imagery created by nature and her surroundings. Her designs have been published in books and magazines and have been printed on apparel, accessories, home goods, and stationery.
