Kawaii update - February 2016

The exhibition has been and gone at Farnham and was very successful, with almost 7,000 visitors. It is now at Rugby Art Gallery and Museum and looks very different as the gallery is circular. Chika Ohgi's cherry blossom looks particularly spectacular and Everywhere Teddy now has shining eyes! Rugby has an energetic outreach programme and the Education Area is very much a part of the exhibition space. As of writing the Cosplay competition is still to happen, which I am looking forward to seeing but not taking part in...I will report back here. Also jeweller Makiko Minewaki's workshops. After Rugby the exhibition will return to Japan and we are very hopeful that it will be shown there - again updates on this News page.
