How to Wear: Kimono

Saturday, January 28 | 1pm & 3pm
Across history, clothing has been worn as an external expression of our spiritual beliefs, social status, and individual identities. This is the second workshop in a three-part series (saris, kimonos, and West African cloth) that accompanies the exhibition Layers of Influence: Unfolding Cloth Across Cultures.

MOA invites you to learn more about the cultural and historical context behind the kimono. Come examine their beauty up close and learn how to wear and tie a kimono with Chizuru Kinjo and Millie Creighton. Learn from the best: Millie Creighton is an associate professor of Anthropology at UBC and Chizuru Kinjo is a licensed Kimono Consultant with years of training and dressing experience in Okinawa and Vancouver.
