What is 'Kizuna'?

Kizuna (絆) is a Japanese word with no true English equivalent. It refers to the reciprocal bonds and relationships that are formed between one another. These Kizuna workshops are a great place to learn and enjoy Japanese arts and crafts in an empathetic and respectful atmosphere. Newcomers are always welcome.
