Do you have any damaged piece of art made with wood, metal, ceramics or lacquer sitting in a dark corner of your storage?
Lacquer is one of the oldest natural material used in East Asian countries to repair damages and fill / consolidate losses on artefacts. You will learn how to use this amazingly durable polymer to transform surfaces from dull and lifeless to vibrant and appealing over the intensive workshops primarily using lacquer as a filler and varnish, decorated with shells, gold and silver. Be introduced to this semi-permanent, high-quality medium from nature, and amend, adorn and develop your torn or broken art pieces from paintings or sculptures to plates and vases back into its full-fledged glory like a professional! Bring along any art piece(s) to minimize further damage and conserve its aesthetic value.
