Activity Content

Mizubiki is paper twisted into a thread, which is then dipped in starch and hardened to create an ornamental string.
This ornament is used for celebrations and sorrows alike, and its uses are widely varied, such as being tied around wrapped gifts or attached to an envelope with either red and white or black and white ribbons. 

In this experience, participants will tie strings made from Japanese paper to create an adorable plum-shaped mizuhiki ornament, roughly 3 cm in diameter.
