Join this trip to experience making mangekyo, Japanese kaleidoscopes. You’ll learn the traditional method of making these trinkets and take home one as a souvenir! There will also be an explanation on all the ins and outs of the craft and its history.
What to Expect
On this hands-on tour you’ll learn to put a Japanese spin on this globally popular craft, mangekyo (literally, ten thousand glorious mirrors.) With unique beads that are reminiscent of Japanese sweets and traditional Japanese paper, you’ll use a variety of accessories and pieces collected by our host to create beautiful kaleidoscopes.
You’ll also get a crash course in how your host got their start, and the history of how this once only European craft made its way over and flourished in Japan.
