  • We welcome students who are complete beginners, and have never used a calligraphy brush or use a kimono.

Course

  • Our kimono course consists of four sessions, but it can also be arranged for one day.

Outline

  • What is a kimono? What is a yukata? Through this course, students will learn the ways of kimono. We will cover its history, the different kinds that exist and how to appreciate the designs. Students will also learn how to tie the obi (belt). Our goal is that by the end of the course, students can tie their own obi.
