Japanese Boro exhibition (21.09.19
« on: September 22, 2019, 11:39:25 AM »
I went to the Japanese Boro exhibition in Norwich yesterday, it was really interesting especially as some of the items were 100s of years old and had been very thoroughly patched, darned, quilted and repaired. Here’s s few pics in no particular order.

I tried to upload the pics but they kept causing the site to error - so here they are as a drop box link. I can share them in better quality, I got photos of most of the items.

It was quite a small show and very niche - had a decent number of people passing through tho. I've put a link to the photos in the original post - I couldn't get all photos to upload reliably. Enjoy.
