Costume of Japan talk in Village Hall Sep 21
The Simply Stitch studio at the Village Hall will host an evening talk and demonstration on the costume of Japan shortly.
On Monday 21st September Katie Chaplin of Japan Crafts will dress a mannequin in full ceremonial kimono while explaining the history and detail of the costume. Many layers of silk are wrapped, folded and tied to create a stunning outfit. She will also touch upon other aspects of Japanese culture drawing upon her own and often amusing experiences of the country.
The talk will start at 7pm and Japanese fabrics and kits will be on sale. Tickets cost £5 and include drinks and nibbles. These can be purchased at Simply Stitch or its website www.simplystitch.co.uk
