Day 65: Get Muddy
The Crafty Things store on Kadena aside from being the largest resource of crafting supplies on island for Americans (I prefer Daiso myself, but to each their own), offer workshops from sewing to woodwork to ceramics. I’ve taken part in making a pair of Shisa faces and a name sign both classes taught by Jorge, an Okinawan who spent most of his life growing up in South America before returning to his birthplace (And he does have a Spanish accent which I absolutely adore).
I wish I learned about the classes sooner as I would’ve liked to make more crafty goods like dragon vases and larger Shisas and painting Kokeshi dolls. Unfortunately most of the classes I wished to take usually happened around the same time I was working. Ah well.
