Event description

Description

For two and a half decades, Paper Connection International, LLC has been one of Rhode Island’s best kept secrets. On September 21st, during DESIGN WEEK RI 2019 they will host an open house/open warehouse for the first time, to introduce themselves to the local community. They are more than just a paper supplier: they consult, educate, design, and create.

This will be a great opportunity for local designers and artists to get a look into Paper Connection's world of specialty art papers, and to understand how people use them for product, graphic, interior, industrial design, for fine art, and so much more. Through imagery in their mini “museum” (showroom) visitors will be able to learn about the steps involved making paper by hand as it has been made in Japan for centuries.

From 4pm-5pm, local artists and staff will be demo-ing knot tying with mizuhiki -handmade paper string and how a basic sheet of paper is formed by hand from beaten cellulose fiber.

These events are being recorded and photographed. By attending, you give your consent to be photographed, filmed, taped, and/or recorded.
