Yarraville, Melbourne

Yumi and I arrived in Melbourne last night. We decided here as dp's new base. Yarraville is just 8km west from Melbourne CBD. There are some cute cafes, shops and an art deco cinema.

Flash report about the pumpkins

Yumi's mother and one of her friend arranged the pumpkin patch to clear the driveway. They found some small pumpkins. They are not ready to eat yet, but will be soon.

The Yoga Shed

Our recent work is with The Yoga Shed in Richmond.
Theresa and Yves own the shop, Greenhills Organics in Richmond, NSW. It began as just a simple organic groceries, fruit and vege store (which didn't exist in the area) and now includes an organic vege patch next to the shop and their new community yoga centre (which was an empty shed opposite the store).
We are very inspired by Theresa and Yves and their sense of community, their generous hearts in opening up their space for yoga and all things good for the soul :)

We have been working on the logo and flyer for their opening in April. Definitely worth a visit if you are in the area!

Dyeing Workshop in Kyoto

I (taka) went to Japan last month, then I visited a dyeing/weaving studio in Kyoto. It was my third time visiting this place. I did the "Kusaki-zome" (dyeing using plants) workshop. I learned about natural dyeing using different techniques.
50mins drive from Kyoto city center (you can catch a bus too)
choose materials and decide design/colour
the lecture of colours
the process is simple
very simple but hard work
have a rest...
so fun!
