What you'll do

"Maki-e" is a Japanese traditional art using urushi lacquer and metal powder. In this experimental class, you will decorate lacquerware using hira-maki-e—a simple technique that can be finished in one day. Even an absolute beginner, who knows nothing at all about makie, can enjoy it. During this class, you can experience real maki-e, using genuine Japanese lacquer and metal powder. You can choose a vessel—plate, spoon, or mirror—and a design from various templates. I'll prepare the tools and materials, so you do not need to bring anything to the class. After tracing the design onto the vessel, you'll draw the design with the paint brush and urushi lacquer, and sprinkle metal powder on top. At the end, I'll pack your work in a box for you to take home. After leaving it overnight, simply wipe off the extra powder to use your vessel.

I have taught Maki-e for over 10 years after learned maki-e from Shokan Matsuda, a third generation maki-e artisan from Fukui, Japan. I would like to convey the pleasures of maki-e to the tourists in Japan during their stay.
