Day Ten: Silk Painting for Japan

Today, we're chatting about a guest artist lecture event you can participate in next Sat, May 27th from 3-5 pm in the afternoon. As some of you know, I love asian cooking. It's great for eating healthy on a budget of both time and money. One of my favorite things to do is pack healthy lunches for myself and those I love. Bentos come in a variety of sizes and shapes, my favorite are the square ones you can wrap in furoshiki cloths and stick chopsticks through. We will be hand-painting silk furoshiki on site to raise money for Japan.

Please come and make one with us, we will have silk blanks and paints available. We will have print outs of traditional patterns for you to trace or you can make your own.

All proceeds go to support Japan disaster relief. A big thank you to the staff at Animazement for putting this event together.

If you did not get a chance to attend the event because we sold out all sessions, you may purchase your own kit on etsy for $20:

You may purchase the kit on sale on kickstarter for $15 through July 4th:
