The Bamboo Ware of Kogoshima
This event has ended.
Kagoshima is not widely know for its bamboo forests, but has a hidden tradition in bamboo craft which has escaped public focus and is now in danger of being lost as aging craftspeople struggle to pass on their skills. One of the key crafts workshops is the 1925 established Yagi Bamboo Works which has passed down this art through three generation so the family. This exhibition features bamboo products from this workshop, hand crafted to blend tradition with contemporary life.
