Screen printing, having more than 70 years of history in Japan, first originated from Gujo Hachiman and expanded throughout Japan. During Gujo City’s summer dance festival called Gujo Odori, tenugui (Japanese traditional towels) and geta (Japanese clogs) are the essential items.
Takara Gallery Workroom provides hands-on screen-printing sessions – you can choose either tenugui or tote bag to get your family’s hands working - to come up with your very own unique creations. The patterns are seasonable and ever changing, so you will also have fun having plenty of colours and patterns to choose from. Bring your creations to the dance festival to fully enjoy the joyous spirit within.
Through Takara Gallery Workroom, you can learn more about this traditional industry from a new perspective, leaving a special memory of your trip in Gujo Hachiman. Takara Gallery Workroom even has its original tenugui and goods in collaboration with various artists and brands.
From 1,000 yen for the workshop (additional fee for more patterns)
