Hello Sandwich at D ♥ Y

Sandwiches, do you remember the D ♥ Y event which I (perhaps a little too enthusiastically) wrote about here and here? Well, all of my dreams have come true and the other day I was in Utrecht bookstore and the lovely Hiroshi Eguchi asked if I would like to do a craft workshop at D ♥ Y!

The next D ♥ Y will be held on the 5th and 6th February at Claska. I hope you can pop along and get involved in some of the creative workshops and stop by the Hello Sandwich booth to say Hello. The last D ♥ Y was one of the most creative, inspiring days I've ever had in Tokyo, so I promise you, if you are the creative type, you won't want to miss it. And even if you're not the creative type, you should still come - the food, coffee and hot wine were not to be missed.


D♥Y

その場で作る、オーダーする、作って食べる、みんなで歌う。「D♥Y(ディー・アイ・ワイ)」は、相互が作用しながらその場でしかできないモノやコトを生み出す、体験、共感型の新しいイベントです。「D♥Y」という名前にはご想像の通りDIYという意味の他に、DOとYOUを♥でつなぐという意味もあります。昨年の第1回目には2,000人もの来場者を記録し大きな話題を呼んだD♥Yを、ふたたびCLASKAで開催します。40を超える参加者とあなたで♥な2日間をつくりあげてください。
