In the previous academic year, talented students co-curated various types of activities with us, such as diabolo, embroidery and miniature clay food workshops, as well as pastel Nagomi art workshop.
If you have something you want to share, it could be digital illustration, crafting, or dancing, all (crazy) ideas are welcomed!
