EXHIBITION TOKYO | Part 3 - Dreamy Moroccan Garden Exhibition

Hello friends,

The last round of photos will be about the workshops that I held during the exhibition in Tokyo. You can have an idea of the different projects in this post. I usually have a full day project that includes a lunch with my students at the stylish Ove restaurant in Minato-ku. This time it was a tropical brooch that included leaves, flowers and a butterfly. All participants created very beautiful and unique pieces!

Another popular workshop was the Fatima hand brooch, and I must highlight that I had my first male student to attend one of my workshops. It was so interesting to watch which color combination he would come up with (it ended up being a nice red coupled with blue & emerald green).

I would like to thank everyone who attended these workshops and congratulate them again for their hard work and beautiful embroideries!

My dear friend Chikako Yamamoto who is a chef & cooking instructor in Tokyo came to visit on Saturday and brought these delicious cupcakes for us to enjoy at the end of a long week of hard work. She also helped me to bring down most of the decorations, thank you so much for your help Chikako!

If you are into cooking, you should check her wonderful & mouth watering website DDbistro and Chikako just published a new cookbook called Vermicular, available in Japanese on Amazon.

Chikako's cupcakes: as good as they are pretty!

Read Part 1 and Part 2 and don't miss the extra post about the new cafés & restaurants I have tried out during my trip!
