Tazen Co., Ltd.
Since long ago, copper has been called "Akagane". At the Akagane Workshop, you will see and touch copper, which you rarely have the opportunity to come into contact with in daily life. We hope you will come to understand the transformation of "Akagane" copper as it is shaped and heated from a thin sheet into art. Furthermore, in this workshop experience you will use tools such as hammers that have been passed down by craftsmen for many years. You’ll be able to feel a connection with the past craftsmen of this 400-year-old Sendai craft while creating your own original item using traditional techniques.
