Kokeshi Coloring Experience (Subsidized by SenTIA)(こけし絵付け体験会)

The Sendai International Friendship Club will be hosting a workshop where one could try their hands at making Kokeshi, a traditional craft of Miyagi prefecture. Mr. Agatsuma Satoshi, an artisan from the Akiu Traditional Craft Village, will be the instructor.
Kokeshi is a type of wooden doll that originated from hot spring areas in the Tohoku region in late Edo period. It had evolved from what was originally children’s toy to a form of specialized craft.
This workshop focuses on the fun of making wooden dolls. We hope that by learning more about Kokeshi, a craft with several hundred years of history, the participants would be able to appreciate the beauty of Japanese culture. We look forward to receiving your application.
