KIZUNA's November event is a Japanese lantern-making workshop, taught by craftsmen from Kojima Shouten Inc (link below), which has continuously manufactured lanterns using traditional techniques for over 230 years.
Kyoto-style paper lanterns are made using a unique method called jibari-shiki. Participants will learn the history of, and the steps involved in, this crafting process, and create small lanterns to take home, along with an electric lamp, as souvenirs.
This will be a great opportunity to experience a Japanese traditional handicraft and make new friends. KIZUNA looks forward to your participation.
