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.
In this 3.5 hours hands-on workshop, you will learn the Art Kintsugi method, following the principal of ancient Kintsugi but utilising accessible alternative materials which enable us to complete the process within the class.
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 metal powder.
At the end of the class, you will take home a piece of your own Kintsugi art.
