The Art of Japan

CBL J 2179

Our line-up for May-August is now available online as part of The Art of Friendship: Japanese Surimono Prints exhibition (3 March – 27 August 2017). We have a number of collaborative events kindly supported by the Embassy of Japan in Ireland. Join us for workshops for children, teens and adults, lunchtime talks, music performances and film screenings.


Highlights include a haiku for beginners workshop with Eriko Tsugawa (Bealtaine Festival celebration), a screening of Hidden Fortress by Kurosawa, Scorcese’s most recent film Silence, popular Japanese storytelling and origami for families,  as well as a series of Japanese art and music-related events (booking required for the workshops). See What’s On for more details.

For our younger audiences, we have our annual Silk Worm Summer Club Special in July – Japanese Summer – for children aged 6-11 years. Teens aged 12-17 years will work with Maker-in-Residence Corinne Okada Takara from the USA and local artist Lorraine Lawlor to create their own Japanese and Celtic-inspired friendship knots and manga creations. See our Teen Lab page for more details.
