Instructor Bio
Yurie Nakamura learned the art of Washi Ningyo in Japan and she received her teaching certificate in Kyoto. She has been teaching for over 25 years at the JCCCNC and when she first came to the United States she taught Washi Ningyo out of her home. Nakamura loves Washi Ningyo, she loves seeing people's creativity and personality come out through their dolls. As she becomes more familiar with her students she can pick out their dolls just based on their personality.

Rochelle Lum was a former student of Yurie and fell in love with the art of Washi Ningyo. She believes Washi Ningyo embodies many Japanese art and culture. She says it has traditional dress, aspects of origami, and it takes disciplines and commitment to the art.
