We were visited by students and a professor from Yamaguchi, Japan this past week, and treated to a day of workshops.
The workshops, which took place in the Fashion area, gave students insight into the cultural and utilitarian significance of traditional Japanese clothing (Kimono Workshop) and folding/wrapping techniques (Furoshiki Workshop). A few ASN students also accompanied the group on a tour of nearby Rosslyn Chapel.
Professor Ryoko Matsuo’s work in fashion and textiles at Yamaguchi Prefectural University includes projects which aim at the creation of a rich cultural life and take advantage of local resources.
We extend our thanks to Professor Matsuo and her students for their visit.
