the whole day meeting at the Instructors' gathering
from 10:00am to 4:00pm
on February 18 (Saturday)/2012'
I woke up at 7:00pm; but most of the Instructors are not living in Tokyo, so they took a bullet train from their home town to Tokyo, some Instructors mentioned they woke up at 4:00am. Thanks for attending the meeting with us!
(the experienced Instructor is demo-teaching how she gives a workshop, and share the information with the other Instructors. This session is very good for the Instructors who just received the Qualification, and learn the know-how and techniques of giving a workshop by themselves.)
actually I am sooo sleepy for the whole day meeting, coz we just had an Opening Reception for the Eric Luk' Photography Exhibition the day before.
I was being invited as a Guest Speaker,
to talk about the Concept of petit morpho..
to talk about the Stamp Show Hong Kong..
First time meeting in person with the greatest artist: こまけいこ who released quite a lot of books (after Tomoko Tsukui), and also produced her own brand of fabric inkpads.
She is also one of the Guest Speakers in this meeting.
coz she released quite alot of books, so she shared some of the experiences and afterthoughts of making a book.
eh? what happened?!
こまけいこ and I are feeling lonely?!
watching what all the Instructors are doing for?!
I believe this little girl is the youngest Instructor that I ever met.
I think she is 6 or 7 years old age?
She came with her mother!
Exchanging name cards with the Instructors...
actually I remember this lady, I met her two years ago at Stamp' event in Japan.
Unfortunately, she forgot me...and keep saying sorry to me, hahahhah!
こまけいこ is laughing for our conversation!!
busy me...busy me....
bowing for million times I think.
I had a chance to meet some of the Examiners who marked the papers for the Stamps-Carving Certificates, they are sooo professional!!
from this year, petit morpho is carrying a mission to lead the potential Instructors & Artists to show their artistic side, so it is a very good channel for the Artists who want to show their works by holding exhibition, and participating in different events we organized.
There are around 200 qualified Instructors, plus a hundred of Artists doing their own way within Japan. petit morpho is now selecting for the BEST from the huge pool for the upcoming projects.
