Kyoto workshop

Do be in Jori Johnsons workroom is a great honor and a great joy. She is a true master of her skill with felt and design. 

Do be surrounded by fabrics and yarns and felt makes my heart skip a beat. 

In Japan felt is of very very high qaulity and it gets worked and rolled and stretched and rolled and worked some ore . One sleeve is a day's work . 

Japan is well know for its masters and skills and I must say this is not true for all I see as I search .  one thing is for sure , Kyoto needs some milliners . Australia you can stand PROUD for what you do . Your design might not be Japanese but your skills of exicution are very high .
