At Workshop Residence in San Francisco, Tsuyo and Maki hosted several participatory yukata (casual summer kimono) workshops.
Kimono making has become a lost art in Japan, with few people producing hand-sewn kimonos anymore. Opportunities to learn this ancient art are rare, even in Japan.
Participants created contemporary garments featuring Maki's calligraphy, screen-printed on silk, linen and cotton.
Everyone who took part in the workshop finished with a hand-sewn kimono, and a lesson is the intricacies of dressing in one.
