Update!: Check out more photos from the Tea Party/ Trunk Show at the gallery hanahou Flickr page.
Thank you to everyone who came out to on Saturday for the Mochimochi tea party and trunk show!
It was really cool to have a crowd see the show one last time before it was dismantled. (I was busy with that this morning—not as much fun as setting it up, but it certainly was much faster!)
After everyone enjoyed delicious cupcakes from Made Fresh Daily, I gave an unplanned talk and did a little Q&A about knitting toys, writing my book, and how the installation came about. It was a lovely gathering!
Because it was the last day of the show, people who purchased creatures from the installation were able to take them home right then. It was bittersweet moment when I snipped off a little “mochi” riding a cow for a visitor.
(You can also still order many of the little guys from the gallery online shop.)
This was the perfect way to wrap up the show. It’s now all packed away in bags, but it will all hopefully get unpacked again sometime soon in a different place!
