This 2-hour Shuro brush-making workshop will be held in Kyoto in Spring 2024. It includes:
Intro to the historical and cultural context of Shuro hemp palm brooms making
Shuro Hand Brush-making class
Your finished Shuro Hand Brush
Shuro brooms and brushes are traditional Japanese household tools made with hemp palm. They are strong, durable, and effective in picking up fine particles on any surface. Shuro brooms are made by hand-wrapping natural hemp palm fibers with copper wire, which gives them their longevity and aesthetic appeal.
In this workshop, you will have the opportunity to make your own Shuro hand brush with the guidance of a representative from Yamamoto Katsunosuke Shoten, the maker of our Shuro brooms and brushes.
You can choose from two designs, both are perfect for cleaning tabletop crumbs, coffee mill grinds, and cupboard dust. We will have different sessions in the morning and afternoon for making different Shuro hand brushes, so please choose the session that corresponds to your preferred design:
10:00 - 12:00 ENASHI- A slanted brush with copper-wrapped handle
14:00 - 16:00 DARUMA - Bound by copper in bundles of 3, with a wooden handle
This is an in-studio workshop that will take place at our Nunoya studio (5 minutes walk from Gojo Station). Instructions to exact location will be sent after booking.
