Make Your Own Chabako Box covered with Washi

What will be made/learned:
We will cover a 5 k chabako (Japanese tea box) with the Japanese
Washi paper. The Chabako is a wooden storage box lined with tin, which is
traditionally used in Japan for storing tea leaves as they provide perfect
protection against humidity.

The boxes are made from the Japanese Cedar tree.

The box dimensions are 35cm x 24cm x 25cm (5k).

The price includes all the materials needed for the atelier (the box and
the washi paper of course, but also glue, brush, scissors, cutting mats,….).

Notes: There is not previous qualifications required. So far, all the
participants have always managed to make a beautiful and unique Chabako.

Chabako Classes, Japanese teabox class, Best Living Japan StudioTeachers Introduction

My name is Linda Graeble and I am a French native. I started my career as a translator in Europe where I worked for ten years. After moving to Asia, I decided to make a mid-career change to teaching to share my passion for foreign languages with others and went through professional certification programs to become a certified language. I have been working as a language teacher for the last 7 years in India and in Japan, offering private and corporate lessons and have truly enjoyed teaching and sharing with my students. Following an active „learning by doing“ teaching approach has helped me implement new workshops and activities to enable my learners to practice a language while being actively involved in an activity they like. I have been developing different Art and Craft ateliers, amongst which the Chabako Atelier (covering of Japanese tea boxes with washi paper) has become very popular. My ateliers are designed to guide you through different techniques which you can then implement on your own. Having a self-made washi chabako box is something everyone can achieve and it’s a very nice way of bringing a personal trace of your stay in Japan. Besides, a chabako box is a very useful object which you can either use for storage or simply display at your place.
