Tanabata commemorates the legend of star-crossed lovers Orihime and Hikoboshi, separated on opposite ends of the Milky Way. They were allowed to meet only once a year, on the seventh day of the seventh month. Celebrate Tanabata this year by painting your own kokeshi doll versions of Orihime and Hikoboshi in a workshop led by renowned artist Mari Inukai.

Limited to 15 participants or participant groups (max. three individuals per group). Each participant or participant group will receive one set of dolls; additional sets are not available. Workshop fee includes museum admission for one individual; additional group participants must pay museum admission upon arrival.

$20 members, $25 non-members. Please contact visitorservices@janm.org with questions.

Tickets available here.

This workshop is made possible in part by a grant from the City of Los Angeles, Department of Cultural Affairs.
