let's go on a
japanese art adventure!

Are you ready to have a Japanese art adventure? If so, read on (and check the latest photos on the blog too!)

Japanese art has a rich and long history and spans all the traditional social classes. There are functional arts like sashiko - traditionally used to mend clothing; specific arts like kanzashi floral hair decorations for geisha and maiko; everyday ceramics and precious ceramics all the way to expensive arts like brocade, gold leaf lacquer-ware and silk painting for kimono.

I am inspired by all kinds of arts from Japan and on this website I will showcase some that I have experimented with and offer instructions on how you can try them out too! I hope you find them inspirational to get your creativity flowing and that you give them a try and share your art here too!
