Recently the staff at London Printworks Trust received an unusual bit of mail through the post. Textile students from Musashino Art University located in Tokyo, Japan asked London Printworks Trust to take part in their project using ‘bagasse’ (a material from sugar cane) recently outlined as an environmentally friendly resource.
Above shows the ‘bagasse’ postcard depicting a world map which we were asked to mark with our location. We put together a little flock print, shown above, which is now winging its way back to Japan to be shown in an exhibition entitled JAPANTEX2010 starting in November 2010.
We’re all hoping to see photographs from the exhibition, showing other wonderful little postcards.
