Number of Participants
Ikkan-bari is a traditional craft in which washi paper is stretched over bamboo baskets and wooden objects, and then coated with “kakishibu” (persimmon tannin used for strength and protection against water). At Atelier Sennichiko, you can try ikkan-bari using authentic washi paper, or old kimono cloth.
These pincushions are cute and can fit in the palm of your hand (5cm in diameter and 3cm in height). They also make a great gift. These pincushions are strong and durable, and can be used for a long time. The ikkan-bari instructor will carefully guide you.
We offer other workshops to make your own "one-of-a-kind" souvenir. You can make a "Ikkan-bari Bamboo Basket" with a Kaga obi cord handle using your choice of recycled washi or old cloth. Or you can try making wooden fuda ornaments from the Hyakunin Isshu (one hundred poems) using old cloth.
