What you'll do
We'll together make Washi lantern, using traditional Japanese Washi paper. You will choose from various types of colored Washi as material- from simple one to brilliant Yuzen paper(intense color patterns with gold metallic overlay are silkscreened by hand). Lantern that we make is battery powered LED, so you can bring it back home and still use them. I will also provide you with boxes for safe carriage. After we are all set, let's have a moment to chill out. We'll have a little critique over my hand-made Matcha(green tea).
Attracted by Washi and warm light that it creates, I've been running my lantern atelier for 10 years now, Along with my individual lantern creation, I sometimes organize lantern making classes all over Japan. In those sessions, especially I'm passionate about sharing "the light that empowers people" which I call it as light therapy. My works have been featured in TV, newspaper and magazines. I hope you will enjoy hands-on experience of making lantern with your creativity.
