Paint-Your-Own Kokeshi with Takatoshi Hayashi
In this hands-on workshop, participants will be able to paint their own kokeshi dolls with Takatoshi Hayashi. Hayashi-san is an artist building creative, powerful, and playful reimaginings of the kokeshi, a traditional wooden doll. You can explore his work as part of the exhibit Portraits of Feminism in Japan (in Lane Hall through May 2023), on his Instagram account, or through his lecture at Center for Japanese Studies in 2021. Please register for this special opportunity to learn from a talented artist and paint your own doll! Due to the materials involved, space is limited to 30 participants.
