Kimono Making Workshop
We are excited to host a participatory kimono making workshop during the first two weeks in April.
Participants will measure, cut, and sew their own Yukata, an informal summer kimono. The fabric is persimmon dyed kakshibu fabric prepared in Onodera’s studio in Japan. This cotton fabric is a warm orange / grey color and often used for monks robes. Each participant will receive a bolt of the dyed fabric, and a comprehensive kimono making toolkit compiled by Ms. Onodera. There will be two groups of 10 students, with each group receiving four classes of 4 hours each session. There proenhance excersize will be several drop-in sessions for those who need a little extra help with their kimono.
$400 four 4-hour courses, tool kit and a bolt of hand-dyed persimmon kakishibu cotton fabric.
Space is limited to 20 people, divided into two groups of 10:
Group A: 2:00 PM – 6:00 PM Tuesdays, Thursdays (April 9th, 11th, 16th, 18th, Optional help sessions April 19th and 20th)
