Fuki-urushi (urushi means natural lacquer in Japanese) refers to a method of lacquering which thin coating of lacquer is applied evenly on the wood surface to highlight natural beauty of the grains. Participants will have hands-on experience with using authentic lacquer materials and methods and applying them to wood-ware. They can become everyday tableware.
Participants will be able to complete 2 pairs of wooden chopsticks and 2 wooden bowls in this 3-session workshop involving a process of lacquering, polishing and decoration. The workshop fee includes a Fuki-Urushi Kit with natural lacquer, high-quality Japanese Keyaki wood substrates, along with tool kits and materials all from Japan. We will share practical information from books and references, to tools and materials, and stories behind masters and artisans.
