Learn how to make a New Year’s Kadomatsu at Yume Japanese Gardens on Dec. 14

” We will demonstrate how to make a large, traditional Japanese New Year’s arrangement, made with pine and bamboo, called a kadomatsu. In Japan, these arrangements flank the entrances of homes and shops in pairs to welcome ancestral spirits and to assure prosperity in the New Year. The demo is free with regular Gardens admission. After the demonstration, a hands-on workshop at 1:00 pm gives you the opportunity to make your own small kadomatsu to take home. Workshop cost: $30. Reservations required.”

Sat. Dec. 14, from 11 to 2 p.m. at Yume Japanese Gardens, 2130 N. Alvernon Way, Tucson
