In this 3.5 hours step by step hands-on workshop, you will learn the fundamental skill of Art Kintsugi method, following the principal of ancient Kintsugi utilising more accessible alternative materials which enable us to complete the process within the class and safely.
At the end of the class, you will take home a piece of your own Kintsugi art and be able to repair your own items.
Kintsugi is a century-old Japanese craftwork where broken ceramic objects are pieced back together using 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 a more sustainable way and to rescue objects which would otherwise be discarded.
Class is suitable over 16 years old.
Not suitable if you are pregnant
You will be repairing a ceramic piece we prepare and take home when finish.
Soul Clay Studios has been in Gerringong since April 2021. It’s a purpose designed pottery studio offering pottery classes for novices to experienced potters alike, The studio also provides the opportunity for resident artists to develop their practice by offering regular studio access and masterclasses.
The studio is owned and operated by husband and wife duo, Zeynep and Marcus Testoni. What began as a hobby in Zeynep’s laundry in 2016 as a way to destress after work, grew to running pottery classes out of her garage in Gerroa in August 2017. The pandemic of 2020/2021 created the necessity to move out of the garage into a larger warehouse space to provide a safer, physically distanced environment for pottery classes to continue. Soul Clay Studios has created the opportunity for local artists to showcase and sell their handmade ceramics in studio and through exhibitions.
