Hinata Japanese cultural festival

On Saturday the 8th I explored the beautiful Hinata festival held in the gorgeous bushland setting of the Bibra Lake Steiner school in WA.

There where traditional and modern handmade goodies, delicious food, including a burger with grilled pressed rice instead of bread, excellent gluten free option, indigo and plant dyeing workshops, kids craft, music and more and more..


I had such a great time I didnt take a single photograph! yes kicked myself afterwards…

but i did photograph some of the gorgeous things i purchased there…

so enjoy looking at these and imagining what the festival was like,

and if you live in Perth get to the Japanese Hinata festival next year!!

I read a great quote which was along the lines of

If you have money buy, something unique and handmade


I love to support artisans and be supported as an artisan
