Around Town : "Before and After” Craft Show at Gallery Hanahou

Posted by

Last week I stopped by Gallery Hanahou for the opening of "Before and After," a show by Ossu! Shugeibu, the "macho" Japanese crafting club. The gallery was packed, and the evening was a lot of fun.  There was even an impromptu group crafting project!

All of the work is created from ordinary objects transformed into new creations with a sense of humor.  In addition to the finished pieces, the raw ingredients were on display.  The taped on arrows showing process were a quirky addition ensuring nothing felt too precious.

I liked seeing so many variations on the same theme.

Later in the week, the gallery hosted two workshops on robogurumi, a handmade robotic toy.  I couldn't make it, but  it looks like it was a success.
