A Day in Your Life, Japanese Earthquake
A day can change so many lives. I was fortunate enough to study in Japan twenty years ago, this included placements with a Shifu weaver in Mito, Ibaraki and other with papermakers in areas North of Tokyo and in the Ibaraki Region, some of the worst hit areas. I decided to hold a couple of informal raffles of my work offering small framed pieces as a token of thanks for those who helped to raise money for the victims of the earthquake.
To the students of Kent Adult Education, Maidstone and the ladies of the Bedfrod Emboiderers' Guild, sincere thanks. In total, nearly £300 was raised.
