Kintsugi discovery workshop

Kintsugi is an old Japanese art of fixing broken pottery with gold. The story goes that kintsugi may have originated when in the late 15th century the emperor sent his damaged pottery back to China for repairs. When it returned repaired with metal staples, he ordered his craftsmen to come up with something more aesthetic, kintsugi (gold repair). This art became such a hype that some collectors deliberately started smashing valuable pottery so it could be repaired with the gold seams of kintsugi.

Participants to Addictlab’s Kintsugi discovery workshop can bring broken ceramic pieces to be repaired. Price includes workshop and a kintsugi kit for each participant used in the workshop. Recommended for : intergenerational activities (families) and for team building (companies).

Makey makey workshops

Makey Makey is an invention kit for the 21st century. Turn everyday objects into touchpads and combine them with the internet. It’s a simple Invention Kit for Beginners and Experts doing art, engineering, and everything inbetween.

How does it work?

Alligator Clip two objects to the Makey Makey board. For example, you and a banana.

When you touch the banana, you make a connection, and Makey Makey sends the computer a keyboard message. The computer just thinks Makey Makey is a regular keyboard (or mouse). Therefore it works with all programs and webpages, because all programs and webpages take keyboard and mouse input.

Cyanotype

Cyanotype is a photographic printing process that allows you print whatever you want as long as you have sun.

Cyanotype is a photographic printing process that produces a cyan-blue print. Engineers used the process well into the 20th century as a simple and low-cost process to produce copies of drawings, referred to as blueprints. The process uses two chemicals: ammonium iron(III) citrate and potassium ferricyanide.

The English scientist and astronomer Sir John Herschel discovered the procedure in 1842.[1] Though the process was developed by Herschel, he considered it as mainly a means of reproducing notes and diagrams, as in blueprints.[2]

Anna Atkins created a series of cyanotype limited-edition books that documented ferns and other plant life from her extensive seaweed collection,[3] placing specimens directly onto coated paper and allowing the action of light to create a silhouette effect. By using this photogram process, Anna Atkins is sometimes considered the first female photographer.[4]

Your final version will be printed on a Open Box paper, turning your picture into an instant framed master piece.

Workshop from 7 years to 107 –  weather permitting.

Tetrapack Cameras

In collaboration with CERN‘s film festival CineGlobe – create your own camera using Tetra Pack cartons.

The Tetra Pak Camera is an initiative of CineGlobe, the International Film Festival at CERN. This workshop teaches the fundamentals of photography through the conversion of an old Tetra Pak milk carton into a pin-hole camera. The photograph is then developed in situ with a non-toxic mix of coffee and vitamin C.
This eco-friendly project is fun for both adults and children, and requires no special tools or materials. Upload your photos online and join our Tetra Pak Camera community!
