Thanks to Launch Pad Gallery in Yokohama, Japan, I have the opportunity to teach a fun bookbinding workshop! On Sun, Sept 30 from 2 - 5PM I’ll be at the gallery with all the materials necessary for visitors to begin creating their own small art books. I found the long-stitch bookbinding technique to be beautifully decorative, very functional, and reasonably easy to complete. Each of my map paged journals were constructed using the long-stitch bookbinding design. There is no charge for this workshop, ”Reading Between the Lines” Book Arts Exhibition is a wonderful collaborative show combining artists from St Helens, England and those of us in Art Byte Critique in the Tokyo Bay area. Come see the amazing variety of artbooks and stay for the workshop! Looking forward to seeing you on the 30th!
Thursday, October 24 from 1:00-3:00pm @ Hagiso Gallery アーティストと一緒にかぎ針編みしましょう 10月24日（木）13:00 - 15:00、 HAGI-ROOM/HAGI-ARTで (誰でも参加できます) Snowflakes of many shapes, colors and skill levels will be available on which to work. I have two great books full of various snowflake patterns. One book is 99 Snowflakes, no author stated. The second book is new to Japan, 100 Snowflakes to Crochet by Caitlin Sainio, 日本語、AND it has the easy to read, universal crochet symbol diagrams! Or bring your current crochet Work-in-Progress. I'd love to see what you are working on, also! Anyone interested in Crochet work is welcome. No charge for the Crochet with the Artist workshop but please at least make a small purchase at the Hagiso Cafe as we are using their space for Crochet. This is event is running at the same time as Geikoten, many more reasons to visit Yanaka! I look forward to seeing you at Hagiso Gallery soon :)
