Next meeting:

October 15, 2017

This month’s subject will be a continuation of our Novice Course studies with part two of the Bizen school.

We will look at the period of greatest (most prolific) production: 1400-1600, i.e. from the beginning of the Muromachi Era up to the beginning of the Edo period. We will expand this month’s study to the continuing tradition as it left Bizen and found expression throughout the Shinto and Shinshinto periods.

In other words, we would love to see your Bizen and Bizen related items from 1400 onward. See you there.



Regular meetings start at 12:30 pm, and generally run until about 3:00 or 3:30 pm. The Board meeting starts immediately after the general meeting. All NCJSC MEMBERS are welcome to attend the Board meetings.
