Please join us to enjoy making artwork!  We look forward to seeing you.


We are pleased to announce that we will hold the second hand-crafted kimono art workshop by Kyoko Ohnishi as Yuzen-washi Kimono Paper Art Workshop held in July was well received.

 

In this second workshop, you will make a Tea Ceremony Bag using Yuzen-washi paper. Tea ceremony bag is originally designed to store utensils used in traditional Japanese Tea Ceremony. Common utensils are fukusa-cloth, kaishi-paper, and folding fan. This bag can be used to store money, even cellphone and earphone neatly together, not limited to tea utensils. As the theme is Tea Ceremony, you will enjoy Japanese dance movements of CHAONDO (Tea Song) on tatami mats by Kyoko.

 

Kyoko is specialized in Kabuki dance and kimono for more than thirty years in New York.

 

Yuzen-washi paper is originated in the Edo era as a hand-painted kimono pattern. Kyoko was fascinated by the grace and elegance of the Yuzen-washi paper, and designs 3D figures based on the Kabuki dance movements. She held an exhibition entitled “Kimono Art Exhibition - The Kabuki Theatre” in 2013 in Manhattan and displayed and sold her artworks at the exclusive retail stores.

 

At the end of workshop, matcha and dry sweets prepared by Souheki Mori will be served.

大西鏡子 友禅和紙きものアート

「帛紗ばさみ作りワークショップと日本舞踊」

 

7月に雪月華で開催されたニューヨーク在住のアーティスト大西鏡子氏の友禅和紙のアート作品作りが好評により、第2回目として友禅和紙で「帛紗ばさみ」を制作するワークショップが9月16日に開催される。

 

「帛紗ばさみ」は茶道で使う帛紗、古帛紗、懐紙、扇子などを一つにまとめて収納できる道具袋のこと。茶道以外に、携帯とイヤホンを一緒に収納したり、紙幣を入れて財布としても、メモ帳とペンなどを入れて和小物ポーチとしても使うことができる。今回のテーマ茶道にちなみ、日本舞踊師範の大西鏡子氏が畳の上で日本舞踊「茶音頭」を上演する。

 

大西氏は日本舞踊師範並びに着物コンサルタントとして舞台衣装や撮影に長年他携わり、日本の伝統文化を広げる活動をしている。ワークショップで用いる友禅和紙とは、江戸時代に始まったと伝えられているきもの友禅模様を手漉きの和紙に写したもので、その美は見る人に優雅さと和らぎを与えると言われている。今回も参加者は好みの友禅和紙の色や柄を選び、大西氏の指導のもとに制作し、各自の作品を持ち帰ることができる。

 

ワークショップの最後には茶道師範の森宗碧の抹茶と干菓子を楽しめる。
