Art Gallery of Victoria
100 children in Victoria now know how to wrap furoshiki style! Last Sunday I was honoured to be a part of the Art Gallery of Victoria's Family Sunday event where children used fabric pens and pastels to create inspiring designs on 27"X27" cotton wraps. They used their wraps to learn how to wrap gifts, bundle up their toys into a cute carry bag and create a cozy wrap for their stuffed animals. It was a treat to spend two hours in the beautiful William Morris style room and my friend Hitomi arrived in a gorgeous Spring kimono for the event. Here I am with the lovely Susanne - a most talented artist and art teacher at the gallery whose enthusiasm, passion for art and happy personality inspire all that meet her! Thanks Susanne and Tania for inviting me to be a part of this event!
