Briefing on the company → visiting the studio→ weaving bamboo basket
Using the bamboo strips plaited into a square-shape, you will weave 'Shikainamikago' basket. The four sidewalls of the basket will be woven with bamboo strips to create waveform. That is why the style of weaving is called "Four-ocean-wave basket." During the workshop, you can learn the history and the ideas of the bamboo fence.
The bottom part of the basket is already prepared so even a beginner can weave a nice bamboo basket without difficulty. The finished basket is suitable for a vase, fruit basket or accessory box, as you like.
During the studio visit, you can appreciate the bamboo fence made with a high level of skill equivalent to a Living National Treasure. Don't miss the awesome bamboos before being processed. There is a shop that displays and sells interior knick-knacks. The bottle stand made of beautifully processed bamboo from Kyoto is especially popular.
