I am working this summer building a 20-foot workboat as part of the Setouchi Festivale, an international art event centered on five islands near the city of Takamatsu, Japan. My project takes place in the Takamatsu Port, where craftspersons are working at a variety of traditional arts. There is a huge contingent of Bengali craftspeople, from metal workers to potters to boatbuilders.
You can learn more about the Festivale here, and I will be keeping a special blog on my project, which is in English and Japanese. I suspect this blog will have more text and information than that one:

A good friend of mine wrote a nice article about the art and the islands.
