Kintsugi is a century-old Japanese craftwork where broken ceramic objects are pieced back together using natural lacquer and gold dust based on the philosophy of Wabi Sabi finding beauty in imperfection.
The process transforms much loved, worn items into a beautifully crafted, new piece of art. It is a chance to live more sustainable way and to rescue objects which would otherwise be discarded.
In this relaxed workshop in my studio, you will learn introductory technique of “Modern Kintsugi”, mending broken parts of ceramics together. The process follows the same principal of traditional method but using more accessible alternative materials which enables us to complete the whole process within the class and bring the piece home.
I will provide ceramics to repair in this workshop.
If you wish to repair your own ceramics I will be happy to organise a private workshop.
