I'm not a working or profesional papermaker, I spend extensive Time in Japan as an Apprentice to understand Washi and also became proficient in other skills. My research over time allowed me to spend time at every paper mill working in the greater Realm of Europe over a decade and a half. I collect hand made paper and decorated papers, I use them in my work printing books and printmaking. For my Dr. in Bookhistory undstanding how paper was made in western and asian application allowed me to understand how the early books were made and the preference for asian papers in early printmakers.
