Be inspired by 6,000 years of traditions across Asia. The Asian Art Museum offers classes and workshops where artists who specialize in traditional Asian art forms teach you techniques which have informed craftsmanship over the centuries.

Asia has a long, revered tradition of fine metalwork, woodwork, textiles, calligraphy and ceramics. Each culture’s unique interpretation of these materials offers multiple examples of how craft and art together can create beauty. The museum offers a range of hands-on workshops from ikebana (Japanese art of flower arrangement) and bamboo weaving to calligraphy and bojagi (Korean wrapping cloths) and more. Please note that these workshops are recommended for ages 13+.
