A Japanese Season in Wales

The long awaited Japanese exhibition opened at our local craft centre this week and I managed a quick visit on my way home today.

The main exhibition gallery is looking pretty spectacular - lengths of beautiful textiles hung in human form from the ceiling surrounding a gigantic washi paper lantern.  I'm never sure whether photographs are permitted here but I managed to sneek a couple when no one was looking! 

My visit today had to be quick but I'll definitely be going again - not least because there are lots of interesting events planned and a delicious looking pop-up shop.  I couldn't resist a couple of teeny purchases today - a set of 12 beautiful postcards and a cute little washi paper bunny notepad with matching envelopes. 

If you live within striking distance of North East Wales I'd definitely recommend making the effort to take a look.  There's plenty of information on the website http://www.japanseasonwales.com/.  And its on till 24th June, so no need to rush either.


  1. WOW, lovely and all those teacups........ I already have a lot of japanese teacups, they are so subtile, their colors are beautiful, what to say more!!!

  2. Thanks for the Photo, Beautiful Japanese Art,
