 Three-Dimensional

Hand-Crafted Kimono Art Workshop

by Kyoko Ohnishi

 Sunday, July 15th 2018, 11 am - 12 pm

at Setsugekka East Village

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


We are pleased to announce that we will hold “Three-dimensional hand crafted kimono art” workshop by Kyoko Ohnishi.

 

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

 

In this workshop, you will make a figure made of Yuzen-washi paper, which 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.

 

For this special occasion, Kyoko will show you movements of the traditional Japanese dance on tatami mats, and you will make a figure inspired by Kabuki dance-darama. On a paper frame, Kyoko wrote Kanji characters in brush calligraphy integral to designs. The artwork can be framed for wall-hanging, table-display, or as a gift card. You can take home the own finished artwork.

 

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

大西鏡子 友禅和紙きものアートワークショップ

 

ニューヨーク在住のアーティストの大西鏡子先生をお迎えして、友禅和紙を使った立体的なアート作品作りのワークショップを開催します。

 

大西先生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っておられます。

 

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ます。大西先生は友禅和紙に魅了され、2000年にきものギフトカードをデザインして以来、壁飾り、ワイン用のきものドレス、茶道用の帛紗入れ、きものブローチなどをデザインし手作りしています。

 

今回のワークショップで参加者は友禅和紙のきものの色や柄を選び、調和する帯結びを工夫し、日本舞踊の振りにインパイヤーされた動きをデザインに取り入れた立体的な作品を作ります。作品はギフトカードとして、もしくは部屋のアクセントとして装飾用に壁に掛けたり机に飾ることもできます。

 

ワークショップの最後には森宗碧の抹茶とお干菓子をお楽しみいただけます。皆様のご参加を心よりお待ちしています。
