JCCH programs director Mandy Westfall models a "shippoyaki," or Japanese cloisonné necklace, made during a workshop.
Learn the art of cloisonné during a "shippoyaki" workshop presented by the Japanese Cultural Center of Hawaii from 1 to 4 p.m. Sept. 7 and/or 9 a.m. to noon Sept. 8.
Led by award-winning enamel and cloisonné artist Kazuko Inomata, students will learn how to make their own one-of-a-kind ornamental pieces, such as earrings, pendants and brooches, in which various colors of enamel are used to produce unique designs on a base of metal or ceramic object.
Inomata, from Osaka, Japan, is a member of the Japan Cloisonné Artists Association and has taught the art form for more than 30 years.
The workshop will take place in the first-floor Conference Room at a cost of $20 for JCCH members ($15 for class, $5 fee), $25 for nonmembers. For more information or to register, contact the JCCH at (808) 945-7633 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
