本来は「着物」ではなく「和服」。「着物に着られる一過性の外見ファッション着付け」ではなく、「日本古来の美しい精神性・礼法が御本人に伴った和装」を、後世に継ぐ御教室です。和服は日本の誇る民族衣装。長い歴史を通し、周囲の自然・社会環境と調和を育む文化から形成されてきた、正に「令和を体現する衣服」と言えます。和装の優美さが世界中で賞賛されていますのは、染め織りの高い技術に留まらず、「和装の精神性・立ち居振る舞い・礼儀作法」が、「洗練された芸術」と捉えられているからでしょう。和装道を通し、近代人の忘れ去りつつある「美(うま)し日本」の素晴らしさ・豊かさを再発見頂きますと共に、お愉しみ頂ければ幸いです。

先人が連綿と受け継いでこられた日本の精神性に触れることで、ただの着付けを越え、近代日本人が失っている立ち居振る舞い・礼儀作法を身に着け、「和を装う道」・調和ある豊かな和装人生を学び愉しんで頂ければ幸いです。受講希望の方は、お気軽にお問合せ下さい。

和装を習うのが初めての方は、基本の浴衣を習得されることが必修です。浴衣は夏のカジュアルな着物で、湯上りや夏祭りで装います。襟ぐりの開いたVネックシャツと、滑る素材のスパッツを下ごしらえとしてご準備下さい。髪が長い方は、必ず結んでご出席下さい。アクセサリーはお外し下さい。 ご自身の浴衣セット一式をお持ち頂いても、レンタル($18)頂いても構いません。レンタルなさる生徒さんは、清潔・無臭でご出席下さい。お稽古の後日に宿題写真をメールで提出頂きますと、一通の批評メールを差し上げます。(提出期日は、翌月のお稽古3日前まで)

最少でも4回のお稽古を経て浴衣が綺麗に自装できるようになり、基本テスト各種に合格し、最少でも2回の立ち居振る舞い講座を修了されました後には、ワシントンDC和装道きものクラブに入会頂けます。会員はクラブの催しへ参加、着物ファッション・ショーにモデル出演、和装現場で先生の助手をするなど、和装道の愉しみを更に広め深める機会がございます。

*申し込み期日を過ぎてのキャンセル・無断欠席に返金はございませんが、欠席理由が緊急時の場合につき、向こう1ヶ月以内の振り替え教室にご出席頂けます。欠席月の稽古内容は翌月に持ち越されます。

Wafuku (Kimono) is a traditional Japanese attire, which has been formed by harmonizing with nature and social surroundings throughout Japanese history. Wa means “to harmonize”, Fuku means “clothing”. Therefore, Wafuku (official term of Kimono) is the attire of harmony. When wearing a kimono, one becomes a living sculpture. This is why the kimono is very much praised worldwide not only because of remarkably refined artisan’s techniques to dye and weave Kimono, but definitely also for its beauty and gracefulness in ones spirituality, motion, and decorum. In this class, all of these in depth are taught, which called Waso-do (Kimono way of life).

This quality class offers beyond Kitsuke (putting on Kimono) enriches your Waso-do (Kimono way of life) in harmony, with elegant decorum based on genuine Japanese spirituality. Please feel free to contact me if you would like to attend and study Waso-do (Kimono way of life).

The first time kimono learner will begin mastering yukata, the most fundamental kimono. Yukata is a casual summer kimono worn after taking a bath or at summer festivals. Please wear a V-neck top, slippery spandex pants and have your hair up for the class. Please remove jewelries. You can either bring your own set of kimono or rent one by requesting in advance. Please come clean and scentless if you rent a set of Kimono. The class includes one follow up e-mail evaluation to your homework photos. Photo submission deadline is three days before the next month’s class.

 

Students are welcome to register with Washington D.C. Kimono Club after mastering yukata through four classes minimum, passing various fundamental tests, and attending minimum of two Kimono in Motion class. Members can participate in the club’s seasonal & cultural events, as well as modeling at Sensei’s Kimono Fashion Shows, to enjoy and pursue further Waso-do (kimono way of life).

**Cancellation/rescheduling can be made by the class reservation deadline. Refunds will not be given to cancellations or no shows after this date. Your credit can be used up to one month from the day for the class, only if the reason of the absence is an emergency.

Atelier Kanawa currently does not train or certify Kimono professionals regardless the refined quality class materials. Please be aware of the ones who may state to be my former short term students falsely titling themselves as a Kimono dresser/seller, while they are completely beginner level amateur and unable to take the responsibility with their dressing skill, knowledge, and Kimono decorum. Without official certification by professional training course and passing the examinations, it is not allowed to title oneself a Kimono dresser/Kimono Consultant to represent the heritage. Our only official assistant dressers are our current Matsu-gumi rank senior students. 

 

Thank you very much for your sincere understanding for what it takes to preserve the quality of "way of life" traditional Japanese culture, and your support to properly and respectfully passed it on from our ancestors to future generations. Our heritage shouldn’t be harmed by amateurs’ ego for desiring their own personal fame, but must be preserved by skillful humble professionals and our dedicated students.
