On August 13th and 14th, I will be visiting Pittsburgh for the first time. A long-established Gallery & Studio, Contemporary Craft (@sccpgh), invited me as a visiting artist/artisan. It is always a great honor to be a part of a nonprofit organization where I can be a small contribution to the Art & Crafting Society. The Full-Day Workshop on 14th is fully booked at this point. However, the lecture is open to the public. I will bring many Sashiko & Boro pieces I own & make. Visitors can touch, feel and “experience” the fabric I always talk about here. 

For the lecture registration, please visit their Eventbrite Page (https://ift.tt/37367N7). I believe they prepared the waiting list for the Sashiko Workshop. If you are interested in coming, please DM me. I will try to contact them to see what the options are. 

I won’t be talking about anything new in the lecture. If you are a long-time follower, it will be the same message & stories you have heard. However, it is very important for me to repeat, and especially in the “lecture” setting. I hope to see/meet you there.

来月の中旬、同州のピッツバーグの芸術系NPO(ギャラリー)にお招き頂いて、刺し子のワークショップをしてきます。同州と言っても、4時間くらい運転するんですけどね。非営利法人として地域密着で50年近く活躍されているNPO。ご依頼を頂くNPOは少なくはないのですが、やっぱり予算は限られていて、飛行機代とかなんだかんだでこれまでご縁を頂くことはあまりありませんでした。今回は運転できる距離なので、ガッツリと楽しんでこようと思っています。前泊させて頂くので、ミニ講演もついてきます。話したいことを1時間に纏めるのが大変そうですが……でも、思いっきり楽しんでこようと思っています。(講演は英語ですが、オンラインでも配信するようです)。
