Experience the Kyoto-style of fine Japanese lacquerware – Kyoto lacquerware Inui Shikki
【Name of facility】
Kyoto lacquerware Inui Shikki
【Introduction, descriptions, and contents of activities】
In the past, lacquerware utensils were vital for both daily living and special ceremonies and became one of Kyoto's representative traditional industries. However, as Japanese lifestyles changed over the past few decades, so has the need for and uses of lacquerware. Today, lacquerware is a popular item for interior decorating and personal and household accessories. At Inui Shikki, we seek to meet this new demand for the beauty of lacquer in collaboration with skilful Maki-e craftsmen and innovative designers.
Makie Introductory Class: decorate a design of your choice with colored lacquer and gold powder and take your work home when finished. (A synthetic, low-irritant lacquer is used in this introductory class.)
