What you'll do
【Special Events on June 12, 19, 27】 These days I am going to offer a short 1 hour experience . The experience is held in Shibuya. We are going to make a simple easy Pig Zodiac. And on these days there are no short tours to shrines. (they are from 3:00pm to 4:00pm) 【This is the explanation about usual experiences】 You can make your own Chinese Zodiac dog from clay. There are 12 animals in the Chinese Zodiac—rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, serpent, horse, sheep, monkey, rooster, dog, and boar—and 2019 is the Year of the Boar or Pig. If you don't have any particular offer, we are going to make a beckoning Pig. But if you want to make your own zodiac animals or a particular zodiac please let me know at least 2 days before the experience. The clay is soft, and you will have a relaxing time during your busy trip . The clay dries in a day, and becomes light and hard, so you can easily bring it back home. I will also take you to a shrine which is famous for its zodiac doll. There are particular guidelines when you visit a shrine, and I will show you how to follow them.
I've been teaching clay arts for five years. I use clay which is soft and light. It can heal your fatigue after hard work or busy trips. I also love animals and shrines. I love to travel, and when I travel in Japan or other countries I visit sacred areas like temples, churches, and mosques. When visiting shrines in Japan, I find that there are so many adorable characters there.
Tea or coffee Bring your own drink if you prefer.
Materials I will provide art materials, clay, and tools. I will prepare a box and bag so you can carry your doll home.
