Kimekomi Winter Ornaments

Come and learn how to make kimekomi ornaments. Kimekomi was developed in the 18th century in Japan as a doll making technique. “Kimekomi” literally means “to tuck into a groove.” The technique was passed down though generations and somewhere along the way someone started making kimekomi balls. With the modern invention of polystyrene foam and easy access to materials, kimekomi is no longer limited to Japanese artisans. All materials and tools will be provided.
