At this one-day Oshogatsu workshop, children can have fun learning about traditional Japanese New Year’s practices. Led by local artists and community members, youngsters will have the opportunity to make calligraphy ink from scratch. Through an interactive arts and crafts project, kids will discover the importance of traditional Japanese Osechi (New Year’s food) and themes as well as get to do some noodle-making. Additionally, they can decorate a shikishi board that will be displayed in the Doizaki Gallery for the 20th annual Shikishi Exhibition. The workshop is limited to 50 participants, so pre-registration is required and space is filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Ages 7-13.
