17:00–19:00 Reception & craft techniques demonstration. Drinks and light snacks are served.
Curious Corners, hosted by Thirteen Crosby, is pleased to introduce traditional crafts from Tokyo, Japan. Tokyo was formally known as Edo, roughly from the beginning of the 17th century to the end of the 19th century. During this period, Japan limited foreign commerce and enjoyed three hundred war-free years under strong Shogunate governance. Shogun summoned master craftsmen from across Japan and designated a special district for them to live and work in the Edo capital. As craftsmen refined their skills to present the most impressive goods to Shogun and feudal lords, they also developed household items and recreational goods for the townspeople. Edo created the unique cultural forms of Ukiyoe, Kabuki and more in design, fashion and crafts.
