Japanese Fishing Float Factory Tour with Christina Sawka of Reverse.Gem
Join Christina Sawka from Reverse.Gem on a tour through the Asahara Glass Factory in Japan. You will learn about the history of glass floats that came from this factory 100 years ago, along with a demo on how floats are created and rope nets are attached.
This presentation was part of the Beachcombing Holiday Festival on November 27, 2021. You can watch all the Festival videos in one place on YouTube.
Videos and presentations were made possible by our Marketplace Exhibitors, members of Beachcombing Club, and by our Presenters who generously shared their time to take us on their beachcombing adventures, share their expertise, and show some of their collections.
