Ryoko Matsuo and Students Visit from Japan

We were visited by students and a professor from Yamaguchi, Japan this past week, and treated to a day of workshops.

Professor Ryoko Matsuo guides ASN student Flavia Salvador in a 'furoshiki' cloth wrapping workshop.

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.
