Thanks to @asato1984 we could visit the workshop of his friend, who lives on Hamahiga Island, across the brigde from our temporary Labo on Henza Island.
It was very interesting to see how her practice and the amazing studio she has set up on this tiny little island, remote from the urban noise of Okinawa or Uruma city.
Looking forward to another meeting to happen on 10th April, where she will visit Sonda Labo, @Ryuoyama @sondastudio . I hope we can discuss more about natural dies, connect to activities from our friends from DIY or DYE - BadLab project @corinna.mattner, @mamaya and maybe organize another collaboration in the future, similar to Tribe Against Machine @weiweiweiwear activities around connecting the e-textile communities to traditional aboriginal tribes and crafts people in Taiwan.
We had earlier discussions on natural and synthetic dies, lasers, persimon and more here:
