About

About the Course

Half-day Japanese Kintsugi Workshop

Kintsugi is the magical Japanese art of repairing broken pots with gold. This workshop will involve learning some traditional and modern skills of repairing ceramics. 
The session will start with using handmade marbled paper, 24k gold leaf and gold thread as we learn about this ancient traditional art. We will then work with a variety of ceramics which will be lovingly repaired using lacquer and gold metal powder. Each piece restored will be unique and beautiful. 

This is a wonderful metaphor for life. The cracks and our experiences in life make us stronger, unique and beautiful.
