The University of Pittsburgh's Asian Studies Center will host Evan Mason and his workshop "Kitsuke: The Art Of Kimono" on January 8.
Pitt alumnus Evan Mason will teach participants about the craftsmanship put into designing a kimono. The lecture will begin with a lesson on the history and significance of the kimono in Japan, follow with a kitsuke demonstration (how to wear traditional Japanese attire), and end with participants trying on their own yukatas (casual kimonos)!
It runs from 6:00 to 7:30 pm in 4130 Posvar Hall (map). It takes place two days before the center's annual Seijin Shiki / Coming-of-Age ceremony.
