Kadomatsu Demonstration and Workshop
December 14, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm$30
We will demonstrate how to make traditional Japanese holiday arrangements, made with bamboo and pine, called kadomatsu. In Japan, these arrangements flank the entrances of homes and shops in pairs to welcome ancestral spirits and to assure prosperity in the New Year. After the demonstration, there will be a workshop where you can make your own small kadomatsu decoration to take home.
