What's Kintsugi?

Kintsugi is the ancient Japanese art of mending broken pottery using lacquer with gold, platinum or silver. The philosophy of Kintsugi is that an object is sometimes broken. However, this is part of its life. Rather than throwing it away, it can be repaired and the cracks remain to show its history.

In this very special workshop, visiting artist, Jun, will teach you the basic techniques of Modern Kintsugi which are similar to those used throughout Japanese history dating over 500 years. In this workshop, modern materials are used, so it can be learnt by anyone with ease.

This workshop will consist of expert instruction and practical making time. All tools, information and written materials will be supplied.
