Christmas ornament exchange project with Fab network around the world!

By , December 9th, 2013 | Information | 0 Comments

Untitled

Hi everyone! It’s Mariko here and I’m in charge of public relations for FabCafe.

Right now, at FabCafe, we’re rolling out an initiative where we exchange Christmas ornament creations with Fab network (including FabLabs!) and those from creative spaces around the world.

The ornament in the photo above that Fab Girl Sonoka is holding is designed by Republikken creator Nanna Lillelund, who is from a creative co-working space in Copenhagen.

You may be surprised to learn that this ornament exchange doesn’t involve sending the actual ornaments, but is an exchange of the ornament design data. This initiative is all about sending bits (data) not atoms (matter) to creators around the world so they can all decorate their Christmas trees together as part of the Fab Christmas Ornament Project 2013 now being rolled out at FabCafe.

A report on the Urushi x Fab Workshop, a workshop in which accessories are produced with sheets of dry urushi (Japanese lacquer) and a laser cutter.

By , December 5th, 2013 | Staff Report | 0 Comments

Hello, FabGirl Sonoka here.
The recent “Urushi x Fab Workshop” consisted of a set of three programs held over a period of two days each, making a total of six rich and varied workshops. I had a great experience and learned many new things participating as a lecturer at the event. I’m dying to tell you all about it, so please bear with me.

Let’s get to know about urushi and laser cutters!

This unique, worthwhile and first class workshop was conducted with the cooperation of urushi designer Kenji Toki.

For the workshop, sheets of urushi produced by the “kanshitsu (dry lacquer)” process were used. Kanshitsu is a traditional sculpting technique which uses layers of hemp cloth that have been soaked in lacquer and allowed harden. Although I have seen urushi on bowls and the like many times, this was the first time I had ever seen it in this format.
