David Pepper has been collecting and studying traditional Japanese artifacts since he bought an old samurai sword in 1958. An artist himself, he has a great interest in artists, craftsmen, and the materials they use. Washi, handmade paper native to Japan , has for many centuries been an extremely versatile material. Washi turns up in surprising places as the main or supporting medium for everything from the obvious books and paintings to swords and armour. David will give a slide presentation on the historical use of washi, and promises to bring a number of actual artifacts for display and discussion.
