Princeton Daruma Project & Community Workshop

Tuesday December 28, 2021
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

With the new year approaching, the Arts Council of Princeton has partnered with Miya Table & Home to present a community project as a refresh, a restart, and a recommitment to our goals, hopes, and dreams. The Daruma is a traditional symbol of perseverance, achievement, and good fortune – an iconic symbol found all over Japan in businesses, schools, and homes. The Daruma is most popular around the new year, made with 2 white circles for eyes. Once a goal is set or a wish is made, the owner colors in one eye. The other eye is colored in only after the goal is achieved or the wish comes true.

On Tuesday, December 28, the community is invited to design their own during the Princeton Daruma Workshop from 1-2pm. During this workshop, local artist Minako Ota will lead attendees to gather ideas and encouragement to customize your Daruma any way you like - paint, deco page, Sharpie, etc. Use your imagination as Minako shows you fun variations to consider and provides the materials to make it all come together. To celebrate this community effort, the completed Daruma will be on view in a collective display in Downtown Princeton to kick off the new year.

Registrants should arrive with a Daruma, available for purchase at Miya Table & Home at 27 Palmer Square W, Princeton, NJ. Artist instruction and all additional materials are provided. $10. For more information and to register, visit artscouncilofprinceton.org. Children under the age of seven should please register with an adult.
