Experience the amazing process of crafting your very own small, Japanese parasol! A parasol is a light umbrella traditionally made of more delicate, handmade materials like cotton, plastic and lace to give shade from the sun. In this workshop, you'll be using quality umbrella parts imported from Japan which are easy to assemble. You can also choose from a variety of lightly water-resistant fabrics such as laminated Oxford cotton and nylon taffeta. Do note that these materials can only provide shelter from short sessions of light drizzles, but not from a heavy downpour. All instructions, pre-cut materials and paper pattern will be provided. You can even purchase additional umbrella parts to re-make the project at home.
