Excellent Workshop to Make Unique Regional Darumas

This is a fantastic workshop to learn about making Chufo-style daruma. The instructor provided a great overview of the history and context of the daruma tradition. She provided a wide array of traditional and modern Japanese fabrics to choose from, explained the different artistic approaches to cloth-based daruma, and also had a wide selection of references on hand for inspiration. They went above and beyond by providing a translator, as well as tea and snacks while we waited for the dolls to dry. Highly recommended!
