August 28th Workshop Afternoon in Tampa

Saturday, August 28th at 3pm. Tuition is due at time of arrival.


Workshop: Shibori Tie-Dye

We will learn today about the Japanese Tie-Dye Technique "Shibori", and learn how to do a simplified version of the age-old tradition. Shibori is used on anything from hairpieces, kimono, purses, and even underwear! Each attendee will be able to make their own shibori fabric to take home with them. Minors under the age of 13 are required have a parent present with them during the workshop.


That "Not-So-Boring" Kimono Briefing

This is for beginners wanting to get started on learning about kimono! We will discuss the different types of kimono worn, levels of formality, who wears kimono in Japan presently, and discuss how to identify the difference between a true kimono, and their many impostors. Each person will be able to wear kimono and experiment with different looks to suit their individual taste!


Kanzashi Hairpin Workshop

In this workshop, attendees with learn about the Tsumami Kanzashi Hairpins--a tradition that involves folding fabric into small petals and crafting them into flowers. We will have a brief discussion on how kanzashi is made, who wore them in the past, and who wears them now. Each attendee will be able to craft their own hairpin from real kimono textiles and take it home with them as a souvenir of this workshop. Minors under the age of 13 are advised to use the blue low temperature glue guns, or have a parent present with them during the workshop.


The cost of this workshop afternoon is $20 per person, which includes all tuition costs, a credit towards purchase of a kimono or obi from our website, and refreshments. A portion of the proceeds will also be donated towards the Morikami Japanese Gardens in Delray Beach. It will last approximately three hours, after which, participants are welcome to join us for dinner at the nearby I Ai Sushi.
