KINTSUGI – the Golden joinery of creative restoration

Kintsugi is a century-old Japanese craftwork where broken ceramic objects are pieced back together using lacquer and gold based on the philosophy  of Wabe 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 workshop, you will learn introductory technique of “Modern Kintsugi”, putting provided two broken parts together. The process follows the same principal using more accessible alternative materials which enables us to complete the whole process within the class.
