This is a 2 parts workshop: 2h on the 2nd Nov + 2h on the 9th Nov 2022

Kintsugi is the Japanese art of putting broken pottery pieces back together with gold — a metaphor for embracing your flaws and imperfections. Now offered at UXBRIDGE.

Now is a great time to pick up the pieces and mend them back together. The art of Kintsugi allows this to take place and celebrates the mend in the most beautiful and obvious way!

Kintsugi loosely translates to ‘golden joinery’ and is the ancient Japanese art of repairing broken objects either wood, metal, or ceramic. The techniques of Kintsugi treats the repair as part of the object’s history, instead of hiding the repair as if it never happened. The ‘flaw’ reveals the history, and the resulting piece is considered more beautiful. You will learn how to piece your broken ceramic object back together with beauty under the watchful eye and help of tutor Han Nae Kim.

Lacquer is one of the oldest natural materials used in East Asian countries to repair damaged objects. We will use lacquer and varnish along with gold and silver leaf to reform and repair your broken ceramic object, so the repair becomes part of the history.

Things to Bring: Your own damaged object, a vase, dish, or plate with a few breaks, all other materials included.
