Tonbodama Workshop (Glass beadmaking)

Tonbodama(Glass Beads) are made by melting a glass rod with the flame of a torch and winding it around a mandrel. After making the beads, they are cooled for an hour and are assembled with metal parts to make them into straps or chokers (Our stuff are in charge of assembling).
As we use a torch for Tonbodama making, this workshop is not available for preschool children.
You can stroll around our shop for 1 hour and come back to pick them up, or come back later day. If it is difficult to come back to our shop, we can ship the finished pieces for you (extra shipping fee apply).

* It is by appointment until the day before. Please contact us for more of the day you wish.
