Last week I was invited to give a lecture at Joshibi University of Art and Design in Tokyo where I’d graduated from 5 years ago. It was a 90 mins lecture (in Japanese!) for a group of 150 freshmen from the design faculty. At the end of the lecture, many students came up to ask questions and showed interest in the lecture. It was great to see such enthusiasm! Here are some pictures of how it went!
I studied Craft design and majored in Textile design at Joshibi University. The textile department offers both dyeing and weaving subjects. This was where I learned about modern and traditional Japanese dyeing techniques, weaving on the foot loom and felting. I would strongly recommend this school if you are considering studying in Japan!
