Kintsugi is a century-old Japanese craft work where broken ceramic objects are pieced back together using lacquer and gold 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 sustainably and to rescue objects which would otherwise be discarded.
In the recent years the Kintsugi craftsmanship has been influencing on Modern art around the world.
In this relaxed workshop in my studio, you will learn introductory technique of “Modern Kintsugi”, mending two broken parts of ceramic together. The process follows the same principal of traditional Kintsugi using more accessible alternative materials which enables us to complete the whole process within the class.
We will use the prepared Japanese ceramics in this class.
If wish to repair your own ceramics, please contact to me. I will provide a private workshop to work on your item.
