Join in for this small group tutorial and hands-on experience where you'll learn how to piece back together broken ceramics. 

Kintsugi (also known as Kintsukuroi) which loosely translates to 'Golden Joinery' is the age-old Japanese art form of repairing broken ceramics in a way that is often considered more beautiful than when it was when whole. This ancient technique is a true celebration of 'Wabi Sabi', the aesthetic appreciation of the broken, old or disregarded.

You'll be taken through easy step by step instructions that will teach you how to piece back together your broken ceramics with lacquer and gold powder.

This is a small group tutorial and hands-on experience. 

Essential information:

  • Please bring your own broken object; it could be a plate, cup or vase that holds meaning for you, or head to an op-shop and break one yourself. Ensure you don’t pick something too complicated. 
  • Booking is essential - see more info online, here.
