Come and join our creative collaboration workshop in the beautiful and inspiring Latara Ceramic studio where you would repair and create your own Kintugi art using Latara’s handmade piece of ceramic to take home.
Our next workshop will be on the 24 July at 10am.
In this three-hour step by step hands-on workshop, you will learn the Art Kintsugi method, following the principal of ancient Kintsugi but utilising more accessible alternative materials which enable us to complete the process within the class.
After completing the workshop you will be confident to repair your own damaged ceramics!
Location: Latara Ceramics, Smeaton Grange

What is Kintsugi?
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.
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.
