Event Album: Mizuhiki Workshop: 04/29/2018
Event Note

 Mizuhiki is a special decoration for gift wrap/envelope exclusively used for celebration or condolence occasion. “Mizuhiki” means the wrap is sealed, or to protect (contents) from evil, or to bind (“tie”) people. (quoted from Wikipedia)
The purpose of today’s workshop was to practice for a future visit to Millbrook High School to teach their students. Including new members, participants were all concentrated seriously on challenging to learn how to make Mizuhiki including Awaji-ties and Plum flower-ties.

 水引(みずひき)は、祝儀や不祝儀の際に用いられる飾りで贈答品の包み紙....... 水引は未開封であるという封印の意味や魔除けの意味、人と人とを結びつけるという意味あいがある。(Wikipedia より) Millbrook High School の生徒さん達に水引の作り方を教えに行くという目的の為にこのワークショップをしました。新しく会員になられた方々も参加してくださり、あわじ結びや、梅結びの作り方を真剣にチャレンジしておられました。 啓子Wright インストラクター
