Wagasa or Japanese umbrella has been in existence since 794 AD and was initially used to protect members of imperial family from sunlight and evil spirits. Today, these umbrellas form an integral part of the Japanese culture.
During your trip to Japan, learn the craft of making these traditional umbrellas called Kyo-Wagasa in Kyoto. With the help of an expert, you will make miniature versions of the umbrella which you can take home as a memento. Your teacher will explain you the process in detail and tell you about the different types of umbrellas that you can make. Throughout the session, you will get insights into history and structure of these umbrellas.
You will get hands-on experience on how to make wagasa – from assembling the straws, designing the Japanese paper, drying and finally polishing.
