Kagawa Urushi Lacquer Ware Institute

香川県漆芸研究所
An institute that follows in the tradition of high-quality Kagawa lacquerware
Kagawa lacquerware was developed under the protection and encouragement of the lord of the Takamatsu domain in the Edo period, and since then many artisans have emerged. Today, by making full use of techniques such as Kinma, Zonsei, and Choshitsu, many lacquerware artists continue to play an important role in Kagawa and other prefectures. In Kagawa Urushi Lacquer Ware Institute, founded to preserve and pass on the art of Kagawa lacquerware, students work hard and receive training to master the techniques of lacquerware under instructors, including master artisans known as Living National Treasures.
