United States

In this two-day professional development experience, teachers will take a deep dive into the history of papermaking and the current role it plays in our lives. Day 1 is virtual and will focus on the influence of East and South Asian cultures on the development of papermaking techniques. Day 2 is in person at the The Woodlands and will give teachers an opportunity to participate in every step of traditional Japanese papermaking from harvesting living tree material to making useable stationery.

There will be a one-hour lunch break on Day 2 for lunch on your own.

Parking vouchers are available for teachers who drive.

Teachers will receive 8 hours of continuing education credits.

Co-sponsored by the South Asia Center at the University of Pennsylvania.
