The facilities provided at each studio are repleted substantially enough for students to develop their techniques and ideas.
A characteristic of our school is having strong ties with local industry since crafts are both traditional and popular throughout Kanazawa. Students in the master program develop their specialized techniques and ideas. One goal of doctoral students is to apply their original creativity to writing insightful theses as well as completing their pieces. Many of our foreign students have become artists or teachers and served an important cultural function in their home countries.
