What you'll do

Come visit our atlier/studio at local downtown Yokohama. Get off at JR Shin Sugita or Keikyu Sugita station : 10min. walk. No tourist only local exist in this area, this is here we reside. In our studio, you will paint on -glaze pigments using brushes on 1 7cm porcelain plate which has Yokohama vernacular designs (Scenery of old Yokohama ,Old European Boats Sailing in, Roses)already outlined and fired . You will complete decorating the pieces by painting in the pigment colors to the outline drwaing on the plate as you observe the design draft drawing and the sample shown. We will prepare the pigments ingredients ready to be painted color by color. Will use water solvent medium, no odor. The host will carefully guide and advise you how to paint, so no worry if you do not have any experience nor confidence. When you felt you made a mistake, do now worry. You can wipe off the mark very easily, and try as much as you want. You will be surprise that 2hours concentration is very meditative and the experience is very special. As the host gives an advise upon painting, also adds a story why those design is so Yokohama and what is Yokohama culture is like. By so host hope the guests will experience and understand what Yokohama is like. The host will give critique on the painted plates and will point out how the plate depicts the painter's character. After the plates have painted, we will fire them on our kiln at latter date. Will inform when they are fired. Can pick them up or can be delievered to suggested address ( shipping charge apply). The plates come in the box with the plate stand. The plate can be used as a regular tableware as a dish for food, also can be decorate as a show plates in the house. The plate will be the unique MY ONLY PLATE in the world but also carries the spirit and culture of city of Yokohama. Hoping the culture of Yokohama unites with the everyday life of the guests : whether he or she is Japanese or any nationality it does not matter, Yokohama is a port city and have a tradition of merging various cultures. The merge is where the world peace starts and we would like start with the guests from making a Yokohama plate together.

横浜の景色を切り取った絵に、筆で色を乗せていきます。2時間はあっという間でした。最後には日付とサインを入れます。お皿を見るたびに、楽しかった旅を思い出せそうです! ホストご夫妻は横浜の歴史や文化に造詣が深く、お話もとても楽しいです。美味しいお店の情報も教えてもらえますよ。 We had an experience of painting a plate which illustrates scenic views of Yokohama. By putting the date and the signature, the plate will become a good memory of the trip. The hosts also have deep knowledge of Yokohama's history and culture, so it is really a fun talking with them. Highly recommended!

横浜開港とともに始まった伝統ある横浜焼の体験を行うことができます。 4種類の絵柄の皿から1種類を選んで8色ほどの色を順番に彩色していきます。 絵筆を持ったのは久しぶりですが、日常を忘れて集中でき、2時間があっという間にすぎました。 皿が焼きあがってくるのが楽しみです。 We had a great experience painting the plates of Yokohama Porcelain. Yokohama Porcelain is a traditional porcelain manufacturer which has a tradition back to 1850s. We can choose from 4 design patterns, and paint about 8 colors in 2 hours. I haven't done painting for a long time. But it was not so difficult, and was really a fun. Highly recommended.
