Kintsugi 金継ぎ is the art of repairing pottery with gold or silver and understanding that the piece is more beautiful for having been broken.
This workshop will teach the basics of mending broken ceramics using the traditional methods of ‘kintsugi’ – with real lacquer and your choice of gold or silver.
Starter Pack – $1500, includes 3 classes* + all tools and ingredients
(After the first three classes all participants are encouraged to continue learning at a discounted rate of $450/class**)
Please bring any broken ceramics from home, however, additional broken pieces will also be available on site and sold by the piece.
*Due to the fact that we will be using real lacquer and other natural ingredients, a minimum of three sessions is required to complete a basic repair.
**Please submit any photos of broken ceramics that you would like to repair in advance. Some repairs may require more than three classes to mend.
