This class is a two part class; the first class is to prep the basket and the second to decorate the basket. Varnish will be provided to take more after a week of drying.

Ikkanbari is a traditional handicraft in the Kagawa Prefecture where taking old and worn-out items (especially damaged baskets) and making them new and beautiful again. The technique is similar to paper-mache, in which several layers of wash paper is pasted to a frame base, such as baskets, and then varnish for a very strong and durable finish. You choose the washi and fabric from the Best Living Japan selection, or you may bring your own.  You will start with a prepped basket (cms 32 x 10 x 25) with a sturdy handle and take home a beautiful and useful basket to be used for everyday shopping or storage.  Class session and all materials is 10,000 yen (+10% JP consumption tax).
