Today Kyoko Matsunaga visited Wishi Washi Studio to teach her Water Wheel binding. This is a structure that Kyoko devised and it is simple, elegant and ingenious! I don't know if I've seen my students happier.
These are two of Kyoko's samples plus some of the beautiful papers she brought for us

One of Kyoko's Water Wheel artists' books doing fancy tricks!
Another sample and variation on the themes
And, the best part is that I got to play along - this is my humble attempt at Kyoko's amazing Water Wheel binding
Thank you Kyoko!
