Japanese Fiber & Clay Camp 6/19/23 ~ 6/23/23

Time: 10:00 AM – 3:00 PM
Instructor: Tsuyo Onodera & Maki Aizawa
Location: the Sonoma Community Center (Room 210 & 209)

Maki Aizawa and Tsuyo Onodera, traveling from Japan will guide students through craft projects that are deeply rooted in Japanese Culture. With an overarching theme of sustainability they will learn how to artfully mend clothing and fiber projects through a technique called “Nuitsugi.” They will also work in the ceramics department diving into the ancient technique called “Kintsugi” where broken ceramics are put back together using a mixture of gold powder and lacquer. Both of these techniques highlight the flaw and turn something broken into something beautiful. This camp is best for kids with some hand sewing experience.
