In "Paper Making in Japan" from PechaKucha Night Warwick Vol. 1, Rebecca Pry shares her story of how she learned to make traditional Japanese paper, washi, while at the Awagami paper making factory in Tokushima, Japan.

Rebecca is a young artist living and working in Warwick, NY. Her work is heavily inspired by the patterns and imagery created by nature and her surroundings. Her designs have been published in books and magazines and have been printed on apparel, accessories, home goods, and stationery.
