~ Mizuhiki Art Instructor~
"I've always been fascinated by the ways people express their feelings through the simple act of wrapping and tying.
I've been fond of the Mizuhiki art for as long as I can remember, as I am born and raised in Ehime, home to most of the top producers of Mizuhiki in Japan. Weaving the strands of Mizuhiki has been a local tradition in Ehime and lots of talented artisans have developed intricate techniques.
I made it my mission to preserve the concepts and techniques of Mizuhiki inherited from the master craftspeople from that area, and I aim to share this art with everyone who is willing to learn. Each piece we make is unique but each is a little piece of art made by our hands.
Mizuhiki weaving is truly versatile. You can give your creations as gifts and tokens of your appreciation, or use them as decorations. I hope that through these tutorials you too can experience making little (or large!) art pieces that you can share with your loved ones."
