Bonsai in the Bluegrass

Some are already aware, but I have my first Kakejiku making class scheduled at Bonsai in the Bluegrass. It will be an all day class in Louisville Kentucky. Many bonsai artists know several points about the art of display. Here one can learn the technical side of scroll design and seeing the scroll from a different perspective.

The class is limited to 10 students and everyone will learn how to make their own scroll.
Lecture topics will include:
Definition of 表装 Hyousou

History of 掛け軸 Kakejiku
Concepts of Design
Japanese Measurement System (Rin厘, Bun分, Sun寸, & Shaku尺)
Making the Scroll – Many Subtopics

If you would like to schedule a workshop, lecture or demonstration for your organization, please contact to me at
