We participated in the Reborn Art Festival at Oginohama Primary School DAY!


Hi, everyone. It’s been a while! I’m a member of Nijiiro Crayons’ staff, Hakase. It’s been a month since I wrote a blog post.

Thank you so much to everyone who came to see us and purchased our artwork at the Nijiiro Crayons booth at RAF Oginohama Primary School in August. We’ve never sold our work before as artists from Ishinomaki Kinka Ware, so we were nervous but also excited during the week.


Despite my trepidation, many people came to our booth. We sold a lot for first-timers, and as one of the artists, I was thrilled.


The people who came to the throwing workshop also seemed to be enjoying it. I’m so glad that I participated in RAF.


After that, I was asked to be part of another event on September 3rd, which would be mainly held for Oginohama Primary School. I had a pop-up pottery event in the school again as Nijiiro Crayons!

The event was called ‘Oginohama Primary School DAY’. I was surprised by the number of the people who came to us. It was way more than the last time in August when we had Bon Festival.


The decision was made and Oginohama Primary School will be closed, so a lot of alumni came over. I understand the feeling because I was also sad when my alma mater was closed because of the earthquake disaster. However, I’m sure there will be more opportunities for the school building to be used for this kind of event in the future. We’d like to participate as Nijiiro Crayons when it is!
