Japanese artists based in Barcelona Chisato Kuroki and Mihoki Sugita have organized free workshops which aim to raise funds for Japan. The workshops will be held this Saturday, 19 March, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at aDa Art Gallery, c/dels Salvadors, 8,  Barcelona (El Raval).

Chisato will facilitate a workshop on traditional Japanese calligraphy, in which the participants will be also encouraged to think of and write meaningful words to show their support to Japan. Mihoki will teach the participants on how to make Origami, the Japanese art of paper folding. This aims to produce a thousand paper cranes, which will then be sent to the Japanese Consulate in Barcelona and Casa Asia and later on to Japan.

The workshops are for free. The participants may donate any amount and the amount collected will be donated entirely to Japanese Red Cross.
