Stiff, yet flexible, mizuhiki is a strong cord derived from washi paper. Traditionally used in Japan to decorate gifts, this art form is now finding new life in a variety of ways. While still used as embellishments for gifts, mizuhiki is becoming a popular way to accessorize just about anything! These durable cords can be twisted into beautiful knots that will add a traditional element to gifts, phone cases, or even hair. Iida, located in Nagano prefecture, has long been a source of mizuhiki cords for all of Japan. At this workshop, an instructor from Kinoshita Mizuhiki in Iida will explore the history of this special cord, and demonstrate all the fun, interesting ways to use mizuhiki.
