Kintsugi workshop, Saturday 14th March 2020
Kintsugi – which translates as “golden repair” – is the Japanese art of mending broken objects using gold resin to give items a renewed purpose and beauty.
In practice this technique involves mending broken ceramics using lacquer or resin dusted or mixed with gold to create stunning shining veins along the breakage points. The result? Instead of being thrown out, a bowl, dish, plate or vase that was once in pieces is given a new lease of life!
In this 3 hour workshop you will learn and practice modern kintsugi techniques to repair your broken ceramics, using gold or metallic powders mixed with an epoxy resin to achieve an unique and beautiful restoration.
Participants will need to bring along their own broken ceramic items to repair during the workshop. Items such as vases, bowls and plates can be used, but preferably broken items will be in no more than 5 individual pieces to make the repair possible. PLEASE NOTE that all items mended this way are not suitable for drinking or eating off, or regular washing, due to the nature of the materials used in this class.
