Japanese Ceramic Painting with artist Miyu Kurihara
To celebrate London Craft Week 2019, we are proud to host London based artist Miyu Kurihara for a unique, one-off workshop on Thursday 9th May (11am-1pm)
Guests will hear how the artist established her art career and has progressed to become one of London’s celebrated traditional Japanese ceramic artists. Guests will then have the opportunity to try their own hand at painting a piece of Kurihara’s ceramics that are handmade in London using traditional blue and white techniques that originated in east-Asia. As a further celebration of London Craft Week, we will curate our window to celebrate both the artist and the art of ceramics.
Inspired by both Japanese kimono design and traditional Asian ceramics, London based Miyu Kurihara is an artist who produces hand-painted ceramics. All pieces are made by hand and individually drawn with intricate detail. Having learned brush techniques and textile design in Japan and London, she incorporates these skills into her work, using traditional blue and white porcelain craftsmanship that originated in China and Japan. Kurihara is a BA graduate of Tama Art University, Tokyo and holds an MA from the Chelsea College of Arts.
If you would like to take part in the workshop, tickets are priced £25 (Inc. Refreshments) and can be booked at: couverturecraftweek.eventbrite.co.uk
With the Spring/Summer 23 collections steadily rolling out, it’s time to introduce some of the new and exciting labels joining the Couverture roster this season.
Born at the intersection of cutting-edge technology, environmental consciousness and democratic design, Early Majority has seemingly emerged from nowhere, fully formed and intent on breathing new life into the fashion landscape.
To celebrate the arrival of cosy new winter collections at Couverture, we invited brand consultant and digital creator Brittany Bathgate to pop by the store for a catch-up and coffee whilst she was visiting West London from her hometown of Norwich.
