During my time in Sapporo, Japan, we visited the 白い恋人 / Shiroi Koibito Park (one of the most well-loved snacks from Japan), and my partner booked us a short cookie-making workshop as a surprise! We couldn’t make the actual famous Shiroi Koibito cookies, but well, any cookies are better than no cookies 😉
I was following Amado Gudek for its beautiful jewellery ( I got a pair of earrings from their Fallen Trees project), and had asked if they conducted workshops. The founder said unfortunately no back then, but a year or so later, I saw that she had set up Resin Play and I couldn’t wait to sign up for a workshop.
The idea of building a clock from scratch that can run on its own (without batteries) sounded really interesting. We bought this assembly box set from a shop in Taiwan that claimed to do just that – it’s based on a clock that runs on an escapement sketched by Leonardo Da Vinci.
