Starting NY hanji week
tomorrow night at the opening. And at this weekend's lectures/workshops (which are full, I think).
I wanted also to share the site of my colleague and paper conservator Minah Song, who recently opened a private practice in D.C. She's incredibly experienced and knowledgeable; we've taught a hanji workshop together, and she knows her stuff inside and out.
My second bobbin winder made it from Sweden yesterday, my paper knives from Japan over a week ago, and I'll look for x-acto blades in town since I couldn't fly with them. I brought extra interfaced hanji in case I had time to find a pattern and sew a new garment. It won't happen for tomorrow but maybe I can pull it off for Saturday. In the meantime, tonight is the most important night: a reunion with my toddler niece!
