    I had a lot of fun even though my hand was in a bit of pain from an accident. I'd use my other hand, but my non-dominant hand has poor coordination. The event was so much fun and I'd do it again. I learned so much and inspires me to do my own projects at home.

    A very memorable experience!

    I love history and getting to experience traditional art, so this was a great experience! It's amazing how much work goes into dyeing these intricate patterns, and now I have something to show people! The staff didn't speak much English, but that didn't affect our experience at all. Everyone was incredibly friendly and welcoming, and did not make us feel excluded at all. In fact, it was quite the opposite! Though we don't speak Japanese that well, we never felt like outsiders and I would recommend this experience to everyone!
