Sep 2023:Craft Club Social

Sessions will be held online (no in-person option)

Sep 6 (Wednesday): Paper Craft Lover Seminar!

Instructor (volunteer): Kyoko Sugita

“KUSUDAMA : Paper Chain Decoration”

Normally, to complete a single Kusudma, many pieces have to be folded. But, this time with the introduction of the “Yagura” design, it can be completed with twelve pieces. Once you get the hang of it, you can complete one in as little as 30 minutes. Since they can be linked together in a chain, it’s also possible to make them longer over time and create a larger piece when you have the time.

Sep 20 (Wednesday): Knitting Lover Seminar!

Instructor (volunteer): Kaneko Nakahara

“Let’s knit various kinds of cushions!”

Combine motifs from your favorite patterns, such as floral designs, to create cute seat cushions!
