Sendai Tansu Kumanodou Workshop

At Sendai Tansu Kumanodou Workshop we have created the “Kumanodou Lacquer Classroom” for those who want to learn how to make lacquerware as a hobby. Additionally, we offer a “Lacquering Chopsticks Experience” where visitors can easily experience creating their own functional work of art.

Cut the length of the chopsticks and smooth the chopsticks with sandpaper. Color your chopsticks with persimmon juice and apply the lacquer. You have 3 color choices to finish the chopsticks: black, vermilion, or natural (original color of lacquer). Even beginners can easily enjoy this experience as professional craftsmen carefully explain the process.

We have opened “Kumanodou Lacquer Classroom” inside the “Lacquer Art Creation Studio” (Kagitori, Taihaku Ward, Sendai City). There we teach how to master the basics of lacquering, and how to apply lacquerware decorations such as gold or silver painting, inlaying gold, and inlaying mother-of-pearl.
