Mitsuru Yokoyama is a certified tatami craftsman specialising in handmade tatami for traditional Japanese architecture and contemporary design projects. He invites those interested in his craft on a behind-the-scenes tour of his Kyoto workshop. The visit will begin with a warm welcome in the showroom, followed by an introductory presentation about Mitsuru and his work. Afterwards, he will share colour and material samples before opening a discussion over fresh cups of tea. Finally, visitors will have a chance to see the workshop itself and the various machines and techniques used to create endless possibilities with tatami.
