Oct. 18th (Sun), Kinoshita presents Woodwork Class at TIFFpark

Oct.18th (Sun), Kinoshita presents Woodwork Class sponsored by Kinoshita, the official partner of the Tokyo International Film Festival, was held at TIFFpark (Roppongi Hills Arena).

Many families gathered at the TIFFpark where the Green Carpet was rolled.

Executive Managing Director, Takenobu Nishio greets the guest in the beginning.

Following the greeting, the grand total of 70 Kinoshita Meister Club’s carpenters filled the stage! They appear to be tough looking men but they say they are nice Meister at heart who helped the participants do their woodwork.

Before the woodwork, plasterers made their exhibition on the stage and held a class on diatomite plastering on the wall.

The participants of the class were struggling mightily saying “I can’t scoop the plasters properly with the plaster too” or “I’m not sure if I’ve done it right”. We are pleased to send our compliments to the plasterers, who showed their brilliant craftsmanship at the event.

The woodwork class began following the plastering class. The class was divided into Handprint Corner which decorated the handprints with small pebbles made of glass and the woodwork corner. Father, Mother and their children practiced the craft.

The children were enjoying, sitting happily on the chair that they have made by themselves or decorating the handprints on the diatomite plasters with letters and small glass pebbles. Children’s father were teaching their children but were also engaged enthusiastically with craft. The mothers looked impressive with their crafts. It turned out to be an event which children and their parents never became tired of.

The participants brought their handmade crafts back to their home after the class. It was a nice sunny day and we were glad that the participants experienced “ecology” which is the theme of the film festival.
