Yakisugi

YAKISUGI seminar, 13th October in Mooste

Architectural office TEMPT together with the Estonian Woodhouse Cluster are the organizers for
the Yakisugi workshop and lecture on the 13th october 2015 in Mooste, Põlva county. Yakisugi,
also called Shou-Sugi-Ban is a centuries-old Japanese wood surface carbonisation technique –
this is probably the oldest method of protecting wood known to man. For this we invited the
unique Japanese architect and professor, a living legend, Terunobu Fujimori, to visit Estonia. He
will teach us this peculiar wood finishing technique by giving a lecture about traditional
japanese materials and later on conducting a workshop for making Yakisugi. This unique event
will be another cultural bridge between Japan and Estonia – countries so similar, but so far apart
at the same time.

Lecture and workshop takes place 13. october starting at 13:00 in Mooste, Põlvamaa.
Participation fee is 50€ until 9.10, later 70€. The event is in japanese, translated to english.
