Drop-in Family Workshop: Sculpture Meets Fashion—The Art of Netsuke

Sunday, July 17 | 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum
Kemper Art Museum, St. Louis, MO 63112

How do you express yourself with fashion and style? Drop in to the Kemper Art Museum lobby between 1 and 3 pm for a free family workshop exploring the art of netsuke, small wearable sculptures with a long history in Japan. Learn about how netsuke are crafted and their role in traditional Japanese dress while viewing a selection of netsuke and inro from the Museum’s permanent collection. Then create your own netsuke-inspired pendant out of polymer clay to take home and bake.

All ages are welcome; registration is encouraged. Register here.
