Interest Check: Make your own Kimono and/or Kumihimo workshop?
« on: February 02, 2016, 09:14:47 PM »

Ohayou minna, coming out to Fanime for the first time this year.  How's the crowd? Many DIY/creative types?  Would you attend a hands on workshop on making your own kimono, or doing kumihimo?  Thought I would get a feel for what would go over well before panel submission opens.

sounds very interesting... By hands are you meaning we would be able to make an actual kimono there? If so I'd be interested to see something like that.

Fanime crowds get all types of people. Yes, many of us are quite creative. I could see this drawing some interest. Have you done similar workshops at other conventions in the past?

Actual kimono at 1/6 scale :) Get to see and use all the process in a portable size, and it directly scales.

I have taught both at other conventions and events, I'm a big fan of doing stuff amongst the talking about stuff!

I think that'll be kind of cute and would love to be able to know how to make a kimono itself, even in a 1/6 scale. I do hope this panel/activity gets approved.

This sounds really fun!  Would participants need to bring supplies, like fabric and sewing stuff?

Make your own Kimono! has been accepted for those who were interested by the way!  All supplies for this will be provided, I'll have a thing in case people want to throw $5 at us to offset costs, but it won't be required by any means. :)

Time slot set, Sunday 9am to 11am.  Early, sure, but then if you don't finish in 2 hours, you'll have a small project to work on while waiting in lines later ;)
