|Some of my ami hanging out with Amigurumi-ya Ra-yu ami's at RESOBOX|
Opening Reception: Friday, December 12, 2014, 7:00 – 10:00 P.M.Beginning December 12, 2014, Resobox Gallery will be exhibiting 3,000 amigurumi contributed by over 130 artists from 33 different countries. Resobox Gallery wants to turn the space into an “amigurumi room”, filled to the brim with cuddly and cute handmade creatures. This is a unique exhibition in that it’s not highlighting an individual artist, but a concept. The concept, amigurumi, is a culture that began in Japan, but is now cherished by crocheters and knitters all over the world. Resobox Gallery was so inspired by the amount of amigurumi artists out there that they decided to embark on a journey to create an exhibition showcasing the united, global love of this cute craft.
PLUS, all of these wonderful handmade amigurumi will be for sale! Great for Christmas, New Year’s, and Valentine’s Day gifts for all ages.
Watch Mookie the mascot's adventure.
