First paper cut workshop in Japanese

Last Saturday I held a paper-cutting workshop for the Japanese Association in Denmark in connection with the association’s 30th anniversary. 

It took place at Ollerup Højskole in South Funen and with participation from all over Denmark.  Due to an traffic accident The Great Belt Bridge was closed in the afternoon, so the Zealand participants, unfortunately, did not make it to the workshop in time.  But luckily the participants from Funen and Jutland made it in time.

For weeks I had practiced being able to hold the workshop in Japanese.  I was excited to see if I would also be able to make the language flow with the audience.  It went well, although I made some linguistic mistakes here and there. 

 It was a great experience, and I think the participants made some beautiful and imaginative paper cuts.
