Japanese Culture Day is only days away and for those of you that don’t know, Shachihata is a Japanese company. Better yet, it is a Japanese company that produces art products. This means that 3rd November is a very exciting day for us as we celebrate all things Japanese art and culture.
How can you join in?
We want to share with you some of the art and craft ideas that we will be taking part in so that you can join in on the celebrations too.
