Sudden Shower

Not weather, for once, but the name of an exhibition at Kimono House in Melbourne until 15th October, of works by the Bond family inspired by a Japanese woodcut, Sudden Shower over Shin-Ōhashi bridge and Atake (Hiroshige, 1857):

Information about the woodcut at this Wikipedia page.

Works on display include many traditional Japanese craft techniques, such as shibori, papercraft, sashiko, and this
collection of temari balls.

Fascinating exhibit, well worth a look if you are in the area.
