Kyoto Craft Session in Amsterdam
オランダ アムステルダムにて京都の工房を集めた CraftSession in Amsterdamを主催いたしました。
Kyoto Craft Session showcases Kyoto’s traditional crafts in the first Kyoto-based event of its kind in Amsterdam.
Kyoto was Japan’s capital for many years, home to emperors and samurais, its unique history and refined culture is quintessentially Japanese. Many of these traditional Japanese crafts were cultivated by highly skilled artisans and were created for a huge array of needs, ranging from food,clothing, and shelter, to the arts.
“Simplicity”, “harmony with nature”, “profoundness”, and the “power of imagination” are all concepts and sensitivities sought after in Japanese arts and entertainment. These ideologies are central to the Japanese, and are strongly linked with Buddhism — particularly Zen Buddhism — as well as traditions such as the tea ceremony.
These historic techniques have been adapted from a diverse range of Kyoto crafts for modern use, and are brought to you at Dam Square. Many of these delicate and exceptional crafts have rarely been available or seen in the Netherlands. It will also be possible to purchase items at the event (cash only).
