🎌 DIY Japanese Mizuhiki Workshop

Mizuhiki (水引), one of the ancient Japanese art forms, utilises a special decorative cord derived from rice paper. It is tied into different knot forms around gifts, envelopes or part of an ornament. In this workshop, participants will get to know the cultural connotations of Mizuhiki, learn its basic cord tying skills and combine them with a small Shimekazari (注連飾り) which is a popular New Year decoration in Japan.
