Studio Visit: Screenprinter PataPri

May 8, 2016

I visited my friend and textile/printing artist “PataPri”. Her studio is by the sea in Akiya, Yokosuka, Japan, and you could get all the great ocean view from the room she works at.

I regretted that I didn’t take more pictures but her mid-century modern inspired interior decoration and the collection of fabulous handmade items from all over the world entertain me every time I visit her.

And since it was during the annual Hayama Art Festival, which PataPri takes part in, I and my another friend, enjoyed the open studio and printing workshop.
