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).

Kintsugi Workshop 2018

  • January 6th, 2022 at 21:01

Kintsugi Workshop: Sarah Benrubi, Kenta Takeshige, Delphine Mesmaeker

A workshop in collaboration with the Faculty of Conservation-Restoration of Art Works and the Faculty of Ceramics at La Cambre National School of Arts, Brussels Belgium

A Kintsugi workshop using lacquer was organized as part of the school class. The variety of usage possessed by lacquer; its use as an adhesive, its use as a filler by kneading it with other materials, its use as a finishing layer, and its use as an undercoat for metal powder, was practiced along with the Kintsugi process. The history of Kintsugi by Ms. Delphine Mesmaeker was also given in a lecture.
