2014.02.08 (Sat)   13:00 to 15:30 /Place: Iwate Museum of Art Studio

◇Lecturer : Tomoko Okubo(Sculptor)
      I will guide participants though my own interpretation of Finland`s traditional straw decoration “Himmeli.” We must purely offer our weaving up to heaven as we work, as “Heaven” or “Sky” is where the word Himmeli comes from. Interlacing our hands and hearts with the divine straw from nature forms a “prayer,” which results in a Himelli.。
