Tanabata: Fukinagashi workshop

22 June 2014, London

Be part of something big this summer!


As part of the Southbank Centre’s Festival of Love, huge Tanabata fukinagashi streamers will be hung on the balcony of the Royal Festival Hall.


Together with the Southbank Centre and award-winning design team Kinetika, the Japan Society is hosting a workshop day, during which we will work on decorations to hang from the fukinagashi. Come and participate in the making of these iconic decorations, which will bring a touch of Japan to one of London’s great landmarks throughout the summer.


The workshops are open to all, but booking is essential so that we know how many people to expect. You can come just for a few hours, or stay for the morning or afternoon, or even the whole day. However, please note that places are limited.


To reserve your place, please call the Japan Society office on 020 3075 1996, email or submit the online booking form. When making your booking, please let us know what time you plan to come. We will give you directions to the workshop room.


The Southbank Centre, Embassy of Japan and Japan Society are teaming up for more Tanabata celebrations on Sunday 13 July. Please watch this space for further information.
