【Class Contents】

At the experimental class, you will make the work using Hira-makie
technique which is a simple technique and can be finished in one day. 
Even an absolute beginner who knows nothing at all about Makie 
can enjoy it.  During this class, you can experience real Makie 
using genuine Japanese lacquer. ※There is little possibility to 
be poisoned by lacquer because we use diluted lacquer 
which is used for Makie. 
Please feel free to join!

Even when using the same template, they become quite different
finishes when it is painted out or it is drawn only with lines.  
Also it becomes unique and original by chosen vessels, color, 
and arrangement of color work. If you already have an image of
Makie as serious traditional art, you may change that image.  
Please join the experimental class and enjoy Makie!
