Kamakura-Bori Azabu Carving Class Overview
Try your hand at Kamakura-Bori at Azabu; a traditional skill seeped in history involving bold and delicate carving techniques.
Unravelling the history behind traditional Kamakura-Bori reveals it to be carved and lacquered craftwork that was introduced to Japan from the Song dynasty of China during the Kamakura Period. It is said that the Buddhist crafstmen were greatly influenced by the depth of color produced in Song lacquerware and began to produce lacquered Buddhist alter fittings carved from wood.
The real charm of Kamakura-Bori lies in the explicit and bold carvings. The Kamakura-Bori Kiri-Bori Society started the Azabu classes in the hope that as many people as possible would discover the beauty and strength in Kamakura-Bori.
More than 35 years have passed since the Kamakura-Bori Kiri-Bori Society was first established. Our head office is located in Zushi, we have established classes in Zushi, Kamakura and other areas, and our more than forty members enjoy every day producing Kamakura-Bori items that can be used at any time in everyday life.
The classes in Azabu are small, but they provide the perfect forum for warm interaction. In the current environment in which traditional crafts are being viewed in a different light, why not learn the traditional techniques from Kamakura that are seeped in history while in the metropolitan area and try your hand at carving your own traditional craftwork as part of your everyday life?
