There is an exquisite set of videos and books, produced by Kikkoman (I
think) and distributed around the country by soroptimist clubs about
5-10 years ago. I know that the Derby (KS) and Wichita Public Libraries
each have a set. There are about six of them--papermaking, pottery
lacquerware, weaving, fabric printing and something else I think.
Beautifully made--you will be amazed at the craftsmanship.
