Shimenawa

I am so happy that the idea for a “Shimenawa” workshop came together before the end of 2020.

My friend Rimiko and I began envisioning this online programing in June to connect the world in a meaningful way during the pandemic.

Shimenawa, woven rice straw, surrounding a space indicates a sacred or pure space in Japan.

It will be used to welcome the New Year in 2021!

Here is a link for details to our current project.
