Tokyo Womens Collective - Event 1 - Group Photo

First Event!

The first Tokyo Women's Collective event was a success! I say that because not only did everyone enjoy themselves but after the event the majority of the participants went for lunch together - always a good sign.

The two-hour event was held at MTRL in Dogenzaka, Shibuya. The space was is for creatives and projects in various states of completion provided eye-candy and the DIY and fabrication machines inspired ideas for future events.

Half of the group learned Japanese calligraphy and the other half got to know each other better and brainstormed ideas for future events.

These talented women are photographers, architects, designers, teachers, artists, engineers and more!

If this looks like your jam, sign-up to learn about future events!
