remember gallery hanahou?  their upcoming show before + after looks like awesome.  “ossu! shugeibu, translated into english as yo! crafting club, is fueled by a mix of testosterone and pure creativity uninhibited by rules or conventions. using repurposed materials and freestyle techniques, founder and president shoichi ishizawa inspires his myriad club members – men and women who have participated in his workshops – to create surprising craft art without any prior experience in the traditional crafts.”

ishizawa and his club members shun rules but live and craft by these:

  • don’t over-think it
  • don’t plan it
  • don’t use a pattern
  • don’t measure
  • don’t use pins
  • don’t have perfect stitches
  • don’t compare projects
