In the end of August, 22.-24.8.2019, a group of students and professors from Musashino Art University visited Metropolia UAS. The visitors held a three-day Japanese Workshop, where Japanese and Finnish students designed and made dessert plates out of very thin wood. Besides the workshop, the group went for a long walk to explore the surroundings of the campus. On Saturday, the workshop ended with a tea ceremony. Together all the students and teachers made traditional Japanese sweets, sakura mochis, which were in the end eaten from the plates made in the workshop.
The majority of the visiting students have ceramics as their major, and they brought a beautiful exhibition with them, which is visible at Arabia Campus until the end of Helsinki Design Week (15.9.2019).
Here is some photos of the workshop.
