Title:
Upcycling Artwork with Wedding Envelopes

Author:
Natsumi Tabusa

Description:
This is an upcycling artwork with wedding envelopes which used a lot in a Japanese wedding. I'm planning to hold workshops for students in London to create artwork with wedding envelopes. The purpose of this artwork and workshop is following three; 1. Upcycling wedding envelopes It is customary for the Japanese to give the bride and groom money in decorated envelopes at wedding parties. A wedding with 100 guests brings 100 envelopes, and most of the envelopes once used will be thrown away. 2. Utilizing wedding envelopes as a tool for cultural exchange Cultural differences among countries and regions are strongly expressed in weddings. These envelopes are made of Japanese paper and ceremonial strings. The patterns on the paper and the shapes of the decorations have various meanings. They also provoke a conversation about how different countries celebrate marriage. 3. Creating opportunities to think about the environmental impact of weddings It is necessary to rethink how we balance the traditional culture and sustainability.
