Kumiko is a traditional Japanese technique. Thin wooden strips are cut and planed in angles to make all the different parts fit in the exact geometrical form for the particular Kumiko-pattern. In Japan Kumiko is used for decorating Shoji doors (Japanese sliding doors) and walls but is also used for lamps, as art decoration etc.
As participant in this Kumiko course you will be introduced to the Kumiko technique and learn how to use the special Japanese hand tools together with planing templates.
In this course you will learn how to assemble a square base-grid and how to adjust a planing template in order to plane the wooden strips in the angles to fit the chosen Kumiko pattern.
The focus will be on how to use the Japanese hand tools, Kanna (plane), Nokogiri (Japanese saw) and Nomi (Japanese chisels). This combined with the precision needed for the execution of Kumiko as craft.
This two-days weekend course is both for those with and without carpentry experience.
Enthusiasm for woodwork is all you need together with your wanting to create your own Kumiko screen.
For those who are interested in making a Kumiko lamp it’s possible to purchase a frame and a lightning system at the course.
