Sackler, ImaginAsia classroom, sublevel 2
Use an activity guide to explore the exhibition The Gerhard Pulverer Collection of Japanese Illustrated Books. Then create your own Japanese book by selecting copies of folios from the Pulverer Collection featuring scenes of springtime, particularly cherry blossoms and Cherry Blossom Festival related activities; choosing elegant hand-made papers for your cover and tanzaku slips for your title; and using a traditional Japanese sewing technique to bind them.
Event begins at 2:00PM
