Here is a little fast and easy project. It can be made as a project with kids by the lathe or as for me simply for fun and pleasure.
As often before a piece of trash… a cut of from an old parasol stand.
You can read more about these wonderful dolls here:
1. My go on the traditional Kokechi.
3. Shaping, this is where you can play with your imagination.
5. Painting while on the lathe.
6. MaFe Kokechi.
For those of you who wonder why I’m not so much around LJ as usual, I have good news. I am moving. Moving to a new place where there is no workshop…
How can this be good news?
Since I have met a wonderful woman and am moving in with her.
This will not mean I will get no workshop; I’m going to rent one close to home and then build up a new workshop again.
But it will mean that for a while I will have only access to my Japanese tools and so this post will be the beginning of a Japanese tools and use post and blog series.
I hope this could be to some inspiration, perhaps even some dolls…
