漆喰ワークショップ 「私のしろい家」株式会社西建さんより、左官体験やタイル貼りを通して漆喰(しっくい)について教えていただきました。


This morning, we visited our friends at Watashi no Shiroi ie and learned all about Shikkui lime plaster. We tried our hands at plastering a wall, and then put together some beautiful tile art with our new Shikkui skills. Thank you to Mr. Nishida, Ms. Yuki, and all the wonderful people who helped make this day so lovely!






やまがたで知らない人はいないほど有名な「枝でこしらえたサンタ」。そのサンタ作家のゆうのすけさんをデコボコ英語にお招きしました。 子どもたちがそれぞれ自分だけのオリジナルサンタを描き、モコチョコさんお手製の「ゆうのすけサンタ」スウィーツでティータイムを楽しむ、少し早いデコボコ英語のクリスマスワークショップでした。 ゆうのすけさん、モコチョコさん、文さん、そして参加してくださった皆さん、ありがとう!

This Saturday, a very special Christmas guest (a little early, we know, but we always get too excited around the holidays!) came to Deko Boko Eigo and taught us how to make ridiculously cute Santa figures to help us start December off on the right foot! For many years, Mr. Yunosuke Takahashi has been brightening up Yamagata with his adorable decorations, and we were all thrilled to get the chance to meet a local legend. We took a quick break for a cup of tea and some chocolatey Christmas treats, courtesy of the one and only MOCO-CHOCO, and a few festive stories, before putting the finishing touches on our tiny masterpieces. Yunosuke-san, it was real honor to have you, thank you for making us smile! Big thanks also to the wonderful Aya-san, and to everyone who came and took part!

Last weekend, Mr. Suzuki and Mr. Koseki from Suginoshita Ishoushitsu joined us once again to walk us through the art of putting together the perfect Nengajou (New Year's card).This year, we focused on the mouse, the Chinese Zodiac animal for 2020, and put together some really creative and interesting designs. Our two guests talked about the process of drawing, choosing, and putting together the layout, before scanning them into the computer and presenting the designs to the whole group. To finish up, we talked individually about the main focus of each design and received professional feedback on the final product. Thanks to everyone who took part! We can't wait to see how they all turn out!
