My former guest Hiroko Ibuki, a crafts designer who lives in Tokyo is hosting her first workshop on accessories in Shanghai.  She just finished a personal exhibition of her work in Japan.  You can see photos of her work on her blog (in Japanese) here:  http://love-live-laugh.cocolog-nifty.com/hirokoibuki/

Her work is very beautiful and I want to put a plug in for her upcoming workshop in Shanghai.  If you happen to be in town during that time, feel free to check out her workshop!

Here’s the Workshop information:

Let’s make a pretty viola ring and a hair accessory at a cafe in Hongqiao!

Pretty violas are made with  lovely  wire edged ribbons and they are sawn on to a ring and a small comb.
They are very easy to make, but when you learn how to make them, you can use them to decorate many things. You can glue them on to a basket or make a necklace, a bracelet, a head dress and so on…
