Next Saturday is bunka no hi and the National Print Museum in Beggars Bush, Dublin 4 is holding two Japanese craft workshops to mark the day. On Saturday an origami workshop will be led by Japanese/Donegal artist Naomi Fleury, while on Sunday you can unleash your inner Hokusai with a Woodblock Printing workshop.
