What you'll do

I will arrange a personal tour for you of Kyoto's art supply shops and visits to see traditional craftspersons in action. Learn how to use a furoshiki cloth wrapper in numerous ways. Go shopping for shodo materials (brushes, inkstones, ink), paper (traditional handmade washi paper, chiyogami silkscreened colored paper), with expert advice suited to your needs. Depending on the day of the week, some shops may be closed.

Mayumi

Born and raised in Kyoto, I have been active as an artist for over two decades. Starting with photography, I have been involved in the creation of a wide range of arts that include Japanese traditional painting, Western painting, Japanese brush calligraphy (shodo), and mosaic art, and through that involvement, I have acquired expert knowledge on art-related business in Kyoto, thus taking you to my best personal selection. Since many of my workshop participants have asked where to buy art materials, I will introduce my favorite shops, advice to art supply and explain how to use items.
