After a long break, we can finally show you our first session of the other creative pair, Dutch design studio Studio Nienke Hoogvliet and Japanese bamboo craftsman Chikara Kojima!
The session covers material and tools, history and techniques, and also the ecological & social issues of bamboo. An introduction to know more about the bamboo crafts, but also a reminder of our recent mass production and mass consumption that led to the environmental change in Japan.
This program is supported by The Embassy of The Kingdom of The Netherlands and Stimuleringsfonds - Creative Industries Fund NL
MONO JAPAN Amsterdam presents "MJ ONLINE AIR", a project that enables collaborations between Japanese craftspeople and Dutch creators, taking place in a digital environment.
