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 to explore the world of kumiko on a relaxed autumn Saturday.

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.

Kumiko Coaster Workshop in April 2021

The workshop was fantastic. Wiggy is an amazing teacher and the JTA workshop was like an Aladdin's cave (all those lovely tools). I particularly liked the way Wiggy explained and demonstrated each part of the process before the participants tried it. It really worked well. Also having a fully equiped toolbox with all relevant tools for the project was really helpful so that everything could be done exactly as was demonstrated. I really enjoyed the workshop and learned so much about the tools too.

A wealth of information. A great course. Enhanced accuracy and sensitivity in my woodworking. The instruction was clear and concise. I have already put it to good use.
