WORKSHOPS While adults enjoy a guided tour of the house, children are invited to the second floor to the Cauchie couple’s workshop to carry out several activities related to Japanese art (origami, discovery of the No mask), techniques used in restoration (stencilling, transferring and scratching of motifs), colour work (colouring…) . Adults will finish their visit in this workshop rarely open to the public to appreciate the couple’s paintings and the result of the younger people’s workshop.

EXTRA-MUROS In Brussels, between 1900 and the First World War, hundreds of facades were decorated with sgraffiti. The one on the Cauchie House was designed as a gigantic advertising poster for the work of the couple Paul and Lina Cauchie. Their goal is to attract customers who want to decorate their newly built homes. Discover many other examples of Paul Cauchie’s work around the building and learn to recognize his characteristic style.
