Japanese Calligraphy Demonstration @ Craft Fair

We have a great news to announce, Yukiko Ayres,  professional calligrapher based in London, is happy to give us a demonstration at craft fair.

She has started learning the art of Shodo from the age of six and now
works as a professional calligrapher in Japan and UK.
She is also a 5th Dan Kendo master!

This character ‘武道-Budo’ is her recent work which was used for the event held in London.

So from 11:00 am at the craft fair, she will give us a Japanese Calligraphy Demonstration. She will write your favourite words.

Just let you know, words she  will write at the day is not for commercial purpose. If you would like to use her beautiful calligraphy for your flyer or business card or anything like that, please speak with her directory.

All the profit of this demonstration go to Save the Children Japan Appeal and also Muslin Square Project.

We are sure lot of people know about Save the children, but many people might not heard about Muslin Square Project before. Muslin Square Project is organized by Japanese mothers who live in UK. Muslin Squares are large cloths used to wipe babies’ mouths, for breastfeeding or as burp cloths. They are sending these to help young mothers and mothers-to-be in the earthquake, tsunami and nuclear affected areas in Japan. They don’t send goods directly to evacuation centres. Instead, they check how many Muslin Squares are actually needed and the majority are sent to the maternity centres in Tokyo. From there, the goods are distributed to the maternity and evacuation centres in the affected areas.

Hope the money raised at the fair will help people, especially children and mothers who suffered by the disaster.
