A few weeks ago we hosted a Shifu workshop with Meaghan Schwelm who will be exhibiting an impressive amount of Shifu at the Artists foundation Gallery at 516 East Second Street, Boston, MA 02127 November 7- December 19th

In the workshop Meaghan demonstrated the basics of this interesting art, cutting the paper, soaking and spinning paper into the amazing ball shown in the picture. For her project she is using an old atlas which seems to be printed on wood pulp paper however traditional Shifu would have been made from Washi (Japanese bast fiber paper).
