Japanese Women’s Kimono: Online Class!
Have you ever wanted to learn about how kimono fit into daily life? You have the opportunity to learn online from Akemi Tanaka, an accomplished and trained expert on Japanese customs and a famed public authority on Japanese culture in the UK.
This is a rare opportunity to receive a live lecture on the subject of Japanese kimono customs without having to leave your home.
(A photo of Akemi Tanaka borrowed from her own website, akemitanaka.co.uk. You can read a lot about her accomplishments and notoriety within the UK and Japan there.)
The event page features an image of hanfu, an ancient Chinese garment, probably owing to the historical influence that hanfu had on kimono. The presentation looks to be a general overview of the history of kimono, the components of the kimono outfit and the way it connects with the wearer in terms of how it is worn. This would be an excellent webinar for anyone who has wanted to learn about kimono but hasn't known where to start. Bookings essential as there is a small fee for attendance. Book by January 27th to save nearly 50%!
