[Message from Kaori]
Living in the marginal village of Ashigawa, I am attracted to grandmas and grandpas.  I would like to express my art inheriting the handcraft culture built in the Ashigawa nature (farming, carpentry, charcoal burning, art like weaving and dyeing).  We will meet the secretary indigo color through the dyeing experience using fresh indigo leaves, and the joyful wind will greet us there.
