Workshop Lead: Ayami Terasawa

In this series of two workshops led by Ayami Terasawa, you are invited to explore the essence of Mizuhiki, a traditional paper cord, delving into its history, significance, and versatility. 

Mizuhiki, deeply rooted in Japanese culture, serves vital roles in ceremonies like weddings and funerals as a decorative knot to seal gifts, traditionally in red and white, though its color palette has evolved over time. 


Participants will enjoy a unique opportunity to delve into both traditional techniques and modern interpretations of Mizuhiki art, crafting accessories such as earrings, blending intricate knots with contemporary designs—a chance to uncover tradition with a modern twist.

Ayami Terasawa


Originally from Tokyo, Japan. Ayami Terasawa discovered Mizuhiki, Japanese traditional paper cord, jewelry during the pandemic and instantly fell in love with its artistry. Inspired by its tradition and beauty, she began crafting her own pieces. She finds joy in blending the old with the new, creating pieces that bring a touch of brightness to those who wear them.
