In this class, you will learn to make Japanese Kimekomi dolls. Originally these figurines were constructed from wood and scraps of fabric but are now formed from molded wood that students cover with beautiful fabrics.
Students learn the necessary skills for making a basic doll, after which they can continue classes and choose from over one hundred different figurines in the shapes of people, animals, and decorations for holidays such as Halloween, Christmas, Children's Day, New Year's (Zodiac animals) & more.
Dolls range in style, size, complexity, and cost so there is something for everyone. Dolls can be displayed or given as handmade gifts. Past students have had the opportunity to exhibit their creations at annual gallery shows in Naha.
Japanese Kimekomi dolls date back to the 18th century and are believed to have originated at a shrine in Kyoto. The art of making these dolls quickly became a favorite pastime. The class is a great opportunity to learn this traditional Japanese craft.
Ages 18 and older. A maximum of 5 students per class.
