Plastic-free Policy:

Japanese Tools Australia is an environmentally conscious company and we endeavour to eliminate plastics in as many parts of our business as possible. Your purchase will be shipped in recyclable non-plastic materials, and we re-use cardboard and paper wherever possible in our shipping process.

Exceptions to plastic-free policy:

Unfortunately, we are required to dispatch some express items in pre-paid satchels and in such circumstances we have no choice but to use a plastic satchel. Please keep in mind these satchels are 100% recyclable. Our suppliers also use plastic in their packaging of some products, and we do not remove these protective measures before shipping. We are considering strategies to eliminate these two remaining sources of plastic in our shipping process. As many of our items are hand-made, they do not arrive to us or to you with extraneous packaging, though this is not the case for all of our products.

Breakage in shipping policy:

We pack our shipments in specialised materials to ensure that our customers find them in the same condition that we send them. If you receive your products in a damaged condition, please email info@japanesetools.com.au with your order number and photos of the condition of the products within a week of collection. If an item is deemed to have been damaged in transit we will replace it with like kind at no extra shipping cost to the customer.

If you are unhappy with the condition of your product and it has not been damaged in transit, please refer to our returns and exchanges policy. 

Description

Dates: Saturday 16 March 2024
Time: 9am to 4pm
Place: JTA Workshop - 29 Production Av, Kogarah NSW 2217

Kumiko is a craft borne of dedication to detail that also requires the craftsperson the think of it's overall effect on a space. Join us in this workshop to explore the world of kumiko.

We are very happy to welcome Jason of WigWood back to the JTA workshop for a class making coasters with the asa-no-ha (hemp leaf) kumiko pattern. Jason's first visit was to deliver this class to the JTA team, and we can confirm that it was a blast! It was enjoyed equally by those of us who had never picked up a saw as well as those who have tried their hand at kumiko previously. We all finished the class proud of our creations, with great results achievable under Jason's tutelage.

The asa-no-ha technique is a great introduction to kumiko as it requires the accurate cutting of three different angles for the infill pieces, as well as the accurate cutting of a small shoji frame. Students can be expected to be taken through all of the steps to complete a single coaster, and leave with the knowledge to make more.

All tools and materials are provided for the session - all participants are required to bring are themselves and a readiness to give kumiko a red hot go. If you would like to bring your own tools you are more than welcome to, however please ensure that they are sharp and ready to go, as we will be getting straight into it.
