Japanese for Juniors: All About Japanese Dolls!   org

Have you or your children ever wanted to study Japanese but were unsure where to start? Why not learn a little Japanese together while learning all about Japanese dolls...and even make dolls of your own!

From simple wooden kokeshi to elaborate and beautiful hina-ningyŨ, Japanese dolls have been celebrated worldwide since ancient times as cute toys and as works of art.

In this workshop especially for children, you can learn all about the many different kinds of Japanese dolls, and what they all mean to Japanese people. You can also learn some useful Japanese language to help you talk about dolls and other things you might see in Japan. Finally, you will have the chance to make your own origami dolls yourself!    

This workshop is aimed at adults and children (age 6-12) who have not studied Japanese language. All children must be accompanied by an adult, and all adults must be accompanied by a child!

Date: Saturday 28th May 2016, 10:30-12:30 or 14:00-16:00
Fee: £5.00 per child (Accompanying adults are free!)
