Textile Design Short Course (#25) – Tomomi W

Textile Design blog On the morning of April 14, I returned to Japan.
This is Dr. Alexandro saying, “Make a postcard as your masterpiece and send it to the gallery. And one to me.” Reproduction of Umberto Boccioni, Nudo di spalle, 1909

Textile Design blog Here is the back

Textile Design blog Prof. Gioia and me.

Textile Design blog Italian teacher Marco and me.
Marco-sensei teaches us in an easy to understand and fun way with Japanese, and at the same time, he is a healer!

Textile Design blog Prof. Giovanni took me to lunch, I am very happy.

Textile Design blog My last dinner with my favorite roommate. I think Milan is the place to be if you want to work in design. And I’m going to teach Japanese on the side. I taught her about good wine, so she can be a sommelier.” I am not such a superwoman. LOL!

Textile Design blog I hugged a lot of people goodbye.

Textile Design blog I received a parting gift. I wanted to change my life and one of the things I sought was to study abroad in Italy, and after living there for 8 months, I fell in love with the Italian people, who are very expressive with their emotions and don’t make you feel distant from people even when you meet them for the first time.
I think there are many reasons to stop yourself, like time, money, and so on. But if you have the desire to try, I hope you will challenge yourself to do what you love. (To someone somewhere who just happens to be reading…) Thank you for your patience with my blog so far.
