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.
