Marc Reymen, officially recognized as a ‘Master Hurdy-Gurdy Builder’ by the Flemish Ministry of Culture, guides students in his workshop every week as they embark on the journey of building their own instruments.


Hurdy-Gurdy building encompasses a diverse range of skills, from intricate edge inlaying to precise metalwork and from delicate wood carving to meticulous wood folding.


Now, immerse yourself in the artistry of Japanese craftsmanship by creating your very own toolbox. This experience will teach you each step, from meticulous marking out to skilful sawing with a Japanese saw, using hot glue for secure assembly, refining with sandpaper, and concluding with the art of oiling.


Upon completion, you’ll proudly possess a compact toolbox with a Japanese touch that perfectly complements any desk or dressing table. This collector’s item for small treasures is sure to capture the admiration of all who see it.
