Workshop ‘URUSHI ~An Introduction in practice~’

By Nathalie Posson and Kenta Takeshige
8 November-17 December 2021

We are proud to host Kenta Takeshige of the Guild LacArt-association, for a practical workshop on Urushi (Japanese for “Asian lacquer”). The Guild LacArt-association coordinates exchanges on lacquer-research and holds exhibitions in order to realize borderless dialogue, a wide range of interest and create a place to learn lacquer art at the grass roots. The aim of this workshop, is to gather people who are, in one way or another, interested in Asian lacquer work. And to let you experience work with Urushi, an outstanding way to get to know this exceptional material in depth, by executing yourself the Roiro-nuri and Maki-e technique from the preparation of the wooden base, several different layers, up to the decorative finishing technique of Maki-e (“sprinkled picture”, metal powder being sprinkled on the lacquer surface).
