Join Boston Children’s Museum and the Japan Society of Boston for the third in a series of fun, interactive, hands-on workshops that highlight different regions of Japan and celebrate their beauty.
April’s workshop is about trees in Japan, and our guest presenter Hisako will invite you to learn 文香 Fumikoh a scented origami sachet, traditionally placed in an envelope with letter. Each workshop explores one of these four special scents - Aomori’s Hiba trees, Akita’s Sugi trees, Nagano’s Kiso-Hinoki trees, and Miyazaki’s Hyuga-Kusunoki trees. Participants also can try the Japanese art of 絵手紙 Etagami watercolor painting.
This 45-minute workshop will take place at 9:30 and 10:30 AM, and 2:00 and 3:00 PM and is recommended for children ages 6 and up with their grownups. Seating is limited and available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Please note that the workshops will involve scent from aromatic oil.
This program is part of the Japanese Cultural Collaborative: A Boston Children’s Museum & Japan Society of Boston Partnership - Funded by Sue and Bernie Pucker.
