October.22 & 23 a private workshop conducted by Kotori


petit morpho usually hold a private workshop in Hong Kong for the stamp-carving, which is a one-on-one basis, to take a good care and teach the techniques to the student.

as a student, what a precious moment to share the time with the instructor, and ask anything question to solve the problem. The instructor is also willing to teach a quickest and smartest way of some design you feel complicated, and difficult.

it is not only teaching, but also sharing the time with everyone by creating and sharing ideas. Kotori asked each participant which design she likes and creates a personal stamp for a little gift to treasure!

this is what we considered as a BONUS spirit applied to make everyone HAPPY, and unexpected!!


WOWOW!!!
Do you know the reason why Tsubuan and Kotori are popular among all the carvers?!
it is because they both have a wide range of design to catch the heart from the little kids to the old people, the design variation is extremely huge!!!

they created (100) stamps daily...
practise makes perfect + the passion + design varation

Kotori brings along her own carving knife!!!
very long and huge....

actually there is no such a standard way for carving, so we suggested everyone to find out the way you feel comfortable for carving.
Different instructors have their own carving techniques, so it all depends on your own way to figure out which way you like by learning.


You cannot believe BooksActually is not such a bookstore, it is also a place handling all different vintage furniture and goodies.....wao!! the front side is a bookstore, but when you keep walking inside of the store, a huge collection of vintage items here and there, ups and downs.

Please come to have a look if you have a chance to visit Singapore!!
amazing.....


what a trendy place in Singapore, it is called Tiong Bahru.
this kind of building structure I remember it looks alike what we had before in Kowloon Tong area....are they all disappeare?!


after the workshop, everyone can requested for the autograph from both artists!!
please treasure it....I forgot to obtain one copy of the new released illustration book too.



We couldn't expect stamps' collection adopted speedy fast by different customers....
please better visit earlier and adopt your favourites...not many left!!

10/23-11/30: Tsubuan Stamp Solo Exhibition in Singapore


Tsubuan Stamp
Solo Exhibition in Singapore

October 23 - November 30/2012'

he informed me that he would like to shift to create more artistic pieces from now on.....
compared to the Solo Exhibition in Hong Kong held in 2010, his design is getting more mature!


sooo many foreigners were feeling excited of his creations!!!


...and don't forget to check out his personal tools! 
Tsubuan and Kotori are the most popular admirest artists in Japan.
rich of  fun designs and perfect finishing!

October.21 (Sunday) - Arrived Singapore

(it is hardly seen both Tsubuan and Kotori in the single picture, or even in the event..what a precious one shot!! I even forgot to take a picture with them -_-") busy me....busy me.....
coz they keep carving in the hotel, but not on the flight....so the numbers of stocks keep changing, and I am getting busy in correcting, and double-checking.

we arrived Singapore in October 21 (Sunday) in late afternoon.

Tsubuan and Kotori spent 10 hours journey from Hokkaido to Tokyo, and from Tokyo to Singapore.... we met up in the hotel lobby, and immediately moved to BooksActually the only place we selected for holding exhibition, demonstration, and workshop.

(I am always assisting, and getting organized for everything, and give a proper and clear instruction to the artist when their mind is getting confused and complicated)

we have to wait for the shop closed to start our set up.
the artists' usual habitat is always throw me the documents, and artworks in the last minutes.

the idea of tailor-made stamps ordering by Tsubuan is also given to me before I get on the flight -_-"


this kind of activity is very new to Singapore, even to BooksActually ....
so they actually don't know how we presented during the stay.

everytime we are not presenting in the same way, coz we prefer to give customers' surprised, and we will not arrange the same artists....so please do look forward our next time visit to Singapore!!!


lovely kitty cats stationed in BooksActually!!


we had a good rest to have a tea break here before setting up!!
again....everything amazing in Singapore.
(what's wrong for Hong Kong?!)

January.12 (Sat) & 13(Sun)/2013' Printmaking Workshops conducted by Joseph Chiang from Singapore


Mr. Joseph Chiang (Monster Gallery)
from Singapore
will show his works in Hong Kong on
January.1-31/2013'

He will come to Hong Kong to say HELLO to everyone,
and teach you the techniques of Silk Printing, Linocut Printing,
and the commonly known Print Gocco.

Exciting Workshops

January.12 (Saturday) 2:00pm-5:00pm
Linocut Printing

Linocut is a printmaking technique dated back to the 1900’s. A sheet of linoleum is used for the relief surface. A design is cut into the linoleum surface with a sharp knife, V-shaped chisel or gouge, with the raised areas representing a reversal (mirror image) of the parts to show printed. The linoleum sheet is inked with a roller (called a brayer), and then impressed onto paper or fabric. The actual printing can be done by hand or with a press.


***************

January.13 (Sunday) 10:00am-1:00pm
 Silkscreen Printing

In this hands-on basic silk screen printing workshop, participants will learn how to make their own screen prints with the Direct Block-Out method using screen filler.


****************

January.13 (Sunday) 3:00pm-6:00pm
Screen Printing with Gocco

Print Gocco is a color screenprinting system developed in the 1970’s by the Japanese company, Riso. Resembling a toy, the compact and completely self-contained printer is clean, quick and easy to use. The system works using flash bulbs, a carbon-based image or photocopy and an emulsion-coated screen.
