My Japanese Art Workshops

Chigiri-e Workshop

Chigiri-e is a traditional Japanese art form in which pictures are created from pieces of hand-torn Japanese paper called ‘washi’. In this workshop, I will show you how to create chigiri-e with modern material – newspaper.

My chigiri-e technique is simple and it requires few materials. After attending this workshop, you will be able to start making your own chigiri-e at home without getting any expensive materials.

Suitable for both adults and children (4+).

I deliver my workshops in the North East England (County Durham, Newcastle and surrounding areas). Please inquire if you are further afield.

Author Visits

I enjoy visiting schools & libraries to read and talk about my picture books and work with children.
 
My typical library storytime includes book reading with puppets and some songs, followed by craft workshop (30min – 1h).
 
For school visits, I charge £150 for a full day or £100 for a half day.
 
Living in Consett, County Durham, I ask 45p per mile travel expenses (or train fare) for anywhere outside 30mile radius of Consett.
