We are opening an umbrella-making workshop.
On September 15th, we started an umbrella-making workshop held on weekdays from 1:00 and 3:00 PM.
Each workshop is about two hours long, with a fee starting at 6,000 yen.
We have a selection of solid and patterned cloth for 50cm folding umbrellas,
and you to pick from them to make your own umbrella.
To make an umbrella, the first step is to create an umbrella cover, which is the main part of the umbrella, by hemming and cutting the cloth, and stitching it on the inside.
Since this is difficult to create for amateurs (It requires at least a semi-professional level of sewing machine skills,
and at least a year of experience is needed to produce the roundness of an umbrella cover), these covers will be ready-made.
The first thing you will learn in this workshop is how to make a chrysanthemum-shaped hemstitch (A), in order to get used to needlework.
Next, the umbrella cover will be attached to the ribs, eight tip fasteners (B) will be sewn on, and it will be inside-stitched (C) together.
Inside-stitching is a stitch that sews the cloth to the ribs. In this workshop, you will master all the needlework involved in making umbrellas.
Finally, the needlework will end after applying stay tape to the umbrella frame after it is folded up.
There will be several kinds ready at hand, so please choose the one you like the most.
We will continue updating this page with the types of cloth and umbrella styles, as well as other upcharges.
The umbrellas will be 50cm, two-fold umbrellas with fiberglass ribs. They are light and easy to use.
Here is a sample of the three checker-patterned cloth and four plain cloth colors that will be used in the workshop.
（Please note that cloth may change depending on the season.）
You can choose one of these cloths to make your umbrella.
