Paper Cut Workshop at the Japanese Association in Denmark

The Japanese Association in Denmark turns 30, and it will be celebrated with a large two-day event at Ollerup Folk School. The program includes, among other things, sake tasting, Tai chi, yoga, Japanese food, fun – and a paper-cut workshop with me.

Since my first trip to Japan in 2011, I have been excited about this exotic and different country. I have also spent a lot of time in recent years learning the language, including the Japanese script characters.

I have said that I would like to hold the workshop in Japanese, which is a huge challenge for me, so I have already entered sharp daily training.


The Japanese Association in Denmark was established with support from the Japanese Embassy in 1991. The association has almost 300 members, most of whom are Japanese and living in Denmark. The association aims to promote mutual understanding, cultural exchange, and networking. The association is also open to persons of non-Japanese nationality who are interested in Japan.
