This is the most traditional method of creating maki-e. Because you are allowed to use the black lacquerware that has been meticulously painted with urushi lacquer five times and hand-polished six times. Additionally, Maki-e drawing uses 100% natural urushi paint and accented with gold powder(brass powder). As a result, you can delight in the exquisite contrast between black, gold, and red, featuring authentic Japanese patterns and imagery. Therefore, I assure you that you will have an authentic Japanese experience and be captivated by the stunning end result. Moreover, Urushi is 100% natural and food safe.

The workshop takes about 2.5-3 hours and held in English or Japanese.
