Wabi Sabi is a Japanese aesthetic and way of life or a way of looking at things and seeing the world. Wabi means living with simplicity and nature, and Sabi refers to the passage of time. Wabi Sabi finds harmony and beauty in the transience and aging process… things that are worn, torn, weathered, and rusty.
Donna Watson is a USA based award winning mixed media collage artist and teacher. Her process involves hand painted papers using acrylic paints and a Gelli plate. There will be demos and examples of painting Japanese mulberry papers, making prints on the Gelli plate, Momigami and Joomchi.
