Meet in our professional cooking and crafting studio and select your basket and also favorite Japanese paper (washi) and fabrics to decorate your basket. You will spend 2.5 hours decorating your traditional Japanese shopping basket. Please note your basket will take 24 hours to dry. We will wrap in plastic at the end of class so you can transport safely back to your accommodations.
Lauren & Tats
We are curious and creative moms who have been teaching Japanese crafts and cooking for the past few years. Having lived in Japan for close to 20 years we continue to add new Japanese passions and skills including Japanese basket making decorating, indigo dying, kintsugi and cooking. We want to share our passion/obsessions with you. We will provide you with all the materials you need to make your special item from Japan. I promise it will be one of the best items you return home with. The Ikkanbari baskets make great home decor items, wonderful knitting or sewing baskets or place to place your favorite books. Smaller versions are great for shopping and everyday use out and about. Learn a new skill that you can replicate at home.
All materials will be provided.
The entire class will be held at the Best Living Japan studio which is located at 3-17-12 Minami Azabu, Minato-ku, Tokyo
