What you'll do
A long time ago the Japanese used to use a cup to measure out things you'd buy at a store. This cup was square and made from a special wood called "Hinoki" (Japanese False Cypress) It was called "masu" and the quantity was equal to one days portion of rice. Later the cup would come to be used as a vessel to drink cold sake. The corners were made using "finger joints" and the whole thing was glued together using rice glue. In this workshop we will make and decorate mini-Masu drinking cups using hinoki and faux-finger joints. You'll learn about woodworking and put your name in katakana with our wood-burner or paint. When the food safe waterproof glue drys you'll be able to enjoy your cup as a great souvenir of your time in Japan for many years to come.
Some tea/ soft drinks alcohol for additional charge
tools and wood gloves and aprons
