Kintsugi, the Japanese art of embracing your imperfections. Learn how to mend once loved China and earthenware in this mindful introduction to the Kintsugi method. The visible repairs are seen as part of the history of an object, highlighting the cracks and symbolizing fragility, strength, and beauty. This golden repair is called Kintsugi.

The idea of this workshop is to repair a loved item, joining together the fractures using the Japanese Kintsugi method – applying the resin glue to the broken sections and making it whole once more. The imperfections aren’t to be hidden but embraced! The Kintsugi method celebrates the beauty of the scars in an object and recognizes that the history should be shown and not hidden.

Choose your broken porcelain (vase, bowl, plate or cup), and be taken by Claire on a step-by-step guide through the technique of mending each section piece by piece. This is very much a thoughtful and methodical process and one not to be rushed, where each piece is applied and repaired carefully.

All proceeds from ticket sales go towards the Disaster Emergency Committee’s Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal.
