Techniques presentation at NY Urasenke

March 31 – April 2, 2007

NY Urasenke kindly provided us with an opportunity to present our HYOGU craftsmen’s techniques.

Techniques presentation at NY Urasenke ギャラリー


We crossed the ocean because our techniques of maneuvering paper and fabric are globally rare and we wanted American people to see them.
There, we re-covered shoji sliding screens placed in a tea-ceremony room, using a traditional tsugibari technique.
In addition to the re-covering of sliding screens, we gave a presentation of urauchi (lining) and a lecture about the structure of byobu folding screens.
We had many people in the audience including Urasenke students living in NY and their American acquaintances, and received a good reputation.
