MI-LAB Artist Residency

Located at the foot of Mt. Fuji, near lake Kawaguchi in Japan, MI-LAB Artist Residency is the ideal place for Mokuhanga residency. The studio is very spacious, and there is a beautiful garden outside. From the studio, I can see Mt. Fuji. But often times, there are clouds covering the mountain. The second day I got here, I went for a walk on a clear sunny day, and this is a picture of Mt. Fuji that day.

There is another small space by the sink for sharpening our carving tools. While we were in Tokyo, we had a sharpening workshop and that was really helpful.
