Japanese Season of Culture 2019/2020
To celebrate the major events happening in Japan (Rugby World Cup 2019 and Olympics 2020), the UK and Japanese governments have put together a cultural program to bring a slice of Japanese life and culture to the UK. There are many events celebrating Japanese crafts - poetry, music, art and crafts.
For the Japanese Textiles and Crafts Festival at Craft Central, Romor Designs has been asked to exhibit a selection of works including Shibori (resist dyeing), Katagami (Stencilling), Sashiko (embroidery) and Boro (visible mending).
I will alo be running a number of workshops which can either be booked in advance or on the day.
Refreshments will be provided by a Japanese micro-bakery so expect lots of delicious matcha treats and other Japanese cakey delicacies!
Tickets cost £5 and can be used every day, so you can come back if you like. (You will be given a wristband).
