Meet Yuki Tessler,

I am offering Kintsugi and Maki-e workshops in Amsterdam, Delft, Groningen, Rotterdam, Utrecht, and France. Born in Saitama, Japan, I embarked on a diverse journey, spending a decade as a stage lighting designer in Tokyo during my twenties. In my thirties, I moved to Australia, where I developed a passion for pathology and worked for seven years in anatomical pathology.

In 2019, my family’s move to the Netherlands ignited my love for European architecture and culture, enriching my appreciation for Japan’s traditional heritage and techniques.

Today, I’m your guide to discovering Kintsugi and Maki-e art in enchanting cities. Additionally, I specialize in facilitating team-building and self-growth activities for universities, companies, and Japan-related events. Join me on this artistic and cultural journey.
