Workshop Information

Sagaraden Nomura

[027-03]Atelier visit & raden maki-e workshop (round tray; with cutting mother-of-pearl out yourself)


Don't miss a chance to try your hand at raden, one of the decorative techniques of Kyoto lacquerware. You can cut out the desired shape of mother-of-pearl yourself. Take the decorated round tray with you on the same day.

Cut out a desired shape from a piece of abalone, pick it up with the tip of a bamboo skewer and glue it to the surface of the tray. After that, you will draw a pattern with some cashew lacquer on a fine brush and apply maki-e (for that, you will sprinkle some gold dust over the traced pattern) and give your craftwork the last finishing touches. Have fun making your own handcrafted souvenir from Kyoto!
