Plant-dyed threads and temari are handmade one by one in Nishi-Ogikubo, Tokyo.
We have prepared many thread and temari kits with special stories and will be showing them off in Hiroshima for the first time.
NONA staff Rie will be at the store on the first two days, April 29th and 30th.
Representative Rika will also be holding a temari workshop where first-timers are welcome. I hope you have a special day.
Thank you to everyone in Hiroshima.

NONA in the gallery: 4/29-30 Let's talk for two days.
No application is required. Please come directly to the venue.
A temari workshop will also be held by NONA representative Rika.
Temari is often said to be difficult because it is difficult to understand its unique ``seasoning'' in books or videos. I am also a person who loves making things, and I do a variety of handicrafts, but I thought I should learn temari first. I would be happy if I could directly tell you some detailed tips and ways to enjoy Temari. Beginners are also welcome to come.
NONA's Temari class started in Nishi-Ogikubo, Tokyo. We operate our own classrooms in Osaka (Minamimorimachi), Nagoya (Meieki), and online classrooms. There are many students from overseas who take online classes. The students range in age from their 20s to their 80s, and the number of Temari friends is slowly increasing. Over 70 people participated in the temari exhibition of student works that we held for the first time last summer, and in January of this year we were able to hold an exhibition of temari students from the Osaka classroom at Hirakata T-SITE. This is the first time the event will be held west of Osaka. Let's enjoy together the various temari we receive from plants.
We want you to choose your favorite color from a large variety of plant-dyed threads, so we charge the actual cost of materials separately. Please choose on the day.

NONA means "nine" in Latin, and its sound resembles the "ball" of a temari.
The unfinished number "9" represents NONA's path to never-ending, in other words, eternal manufacturing.
The joy of manufacturing always lies in the process.
Vegetable dyeing and handicrafts are difficult, time-consuming, and seem to be avoided at first glance.
For NONA, what flows there is "time" that enriches the soul.
Vegetable-dyed thread, which was first used for making temari, is now used in many handicrafts all over the world.
I would be happy if NONA could add your own color and shine to your days.
