The fineness of the works of the writers is far from being distracted.

“Sanuki Kagari Temari Preservation” is reusing the retro and cute kindergarten building, located about 10 minutes walk from Kotoden-Kawaramachi station.


Among them, Mokumoku and Kagari Temari are being produced, the yarn is dyed, and the writers are working with peaceful.


The gallery is lined with works by artists, but it is a breathtaking beauty.

In this classroom, we will produce “Whip hemp”, which is the basis of Kagari Temari.


First of all, it chooses the hand which becomes the base.


There are many things to be lost, but let’s make a decision.


Next, select the color of the yarn.


This is also a lot, so you will really suffer.


The yarn dyed with indigo, Akane, Walnut, Loquat, etc.is a gentle hue where the heart is relieved somewhere.


Let’s find one of the favorite while applying the thread to the hand.

I will continue to do the yarn while learning the steps to teach the teacher.


At first, I was wondering where to stab it, and I made a mistake, but one and a half hours is quick because I become innocent when I get used to it.


When the end is over, the fingertips are tingling because the power enters.
