Yesterday and the day before yesterday, Bonsai Open Day was held at “ Lodder Bonsai bv” https://lodderbonsai.nl/our-products/bonsai/?lang=en and I sold my handicrafts there.
When I went there, I was surprised to find that the scale was larger than I expected, and there were many bonsai from various countries.
Since it was an open day, there were also food stalls and various other shops.
Sushi, curry, pork cutlet sandwiches, Japanese sweets, Taiwanese tea..., Japanese-style handmade bags, sumie, Japanese paintings, sculptures, ikebana display (flower arrangement), Japanese tableware, flower pots..., and even a medaka(fish) shop…
I was surprised to know and it makes me happy that bonsai is so popular in the Netherlands !
I was very happy to be able to join such an event.
The staff of Lodder Bonsai and the other sellers were friendly, the atmosphere was great,
and I enjoyed the interaction with the people who bought from my stall and the people who talked to me while looking at my stall...
and also happy to see again with lady who had joined my workshops before…
I really had a very enjoyable time at the stall.
Thanks to the people in Lodder Bonsai for inviting me to participate in such an event! It was a great experience.
Thank you also to everyone who came to my stall.

《Date and time》 8 October, Saturday 12:00〜17:00
《Place》 SAKB Kunstlokaal Address: Ouderkerkerlaan 15, 1185 AB Amstelveen *This is where Nemo Sabo is located.
(The Japanese choir group "Sora", in which I am a member, will also sing (from 12:30 to 12:45. I will not be at the shop during that time). This time, we will sing Japan-style songs. Please come and listen to us too if you like.
In "Coloratura ~ Miniature Clay & Handmade workshop", in addition to miniature clay, I also hold workshops on making accessories using Japanese-style cloth, turtle key chains using 5 yen (Japanese coin).
I use 5 yen(Japanese coin) “go-en 5円” in this turtle. The Sound “go-en” also has other meaning “go-en ご縁”(same sound). The latter “go-en” means "fate".
Turtles live long, so it also has meaning that hope to live long and healthy.
While making 5 yen coin turtles, I was thinking I was happy to able to meet various people through miniature clay and handcraft workshops in the Netherlands. I’m glad meeting people and having a wonderful time.
