Participants of the February mask carving atelier special opening

In January and February 2014, Udaka Michishige’s Noh mask carving atelier in Kyoto opened its doors to observers. We received many requests (thanks Kyoto Journal for helping with the promotion!) from professionals, university students, Japanese, non-Japanese, travelers and residents who were curious to come see how Noh masks, mysterious objects of transformation of the Noh actor, are created. Here are a few pictures of the participants of the February 27th session. We are planning to hold more mask-related events this summer, so watch this space for further information!
