Kintsugi is the century-old Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with Japanese lacquer (Urushi) dusted with powdered gold giving a new life to when otherwise items would be thrown away. In recent years this craftsmanship has been regarded as an important traditional art to influence on Modern art around the world.
The process includes the repair of damaged pieces (broken, cracked, missing fragments), preparation of the surface, then a decorative finish with Japanese lacquer and gold (brass / metal) powder.
At the end of the relaxing class, you will take home a Kintsugi art piece you create.
In our workshops, we will be follwoing the traditional method of Kintsugi using more accessible tools and materials.
Kintsugi express Wabi-Sabi philosophy, an embracing of imperfection, whilst appreciating artefact’s history and personal memories. Instead of disguising the damages and bringing them to the original state, Kintsugi emphasises the defects with gold, symbolises life.
