Your host



I started crafting temari and natural dying five years ago. Maybe because I talk passionately, I was asked to teach shortly after. Ever since, I have been hosting workshops in Europe and Japan. I host this experience because I love all the aspects of the workshop.

I also dream of visiting temarists all over the world when I travel. I hope this will also help preserve this precious tradition.
