Have you ever heard of Yuzen? If you don't know about Yuzen well, please check here. Yuzen method uses Tsutsugawa in this picture to put on resist paste like a tool squeezing whipped cream. Yuzen method has a long history, but nowadays the number of craftsmen who specialize in Yuzen has reduced but we think the method has to survive for the next generations. In this workshop, you will learn the overview and mehods of Yuzen, and finally try to make your own handkercheif with the methods.

Teacher - Takayuki Kato
