Event Series Event Series: Mindful Art Kintsugi Workshop

Mindful Art Kintsugi Workshop

Sat 6 April at 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

During the Hands On Clay 24 exhibition in Gang Gang gallery we are hosting an art of Kintsugi,  unique ceramic mending workshop.

Kintsugi is a century-old Japanese craftwork where broken ceramic objects are pieced back together using lacquer and gold dust based on the philosophy of Wabi Sabi finding beauty in imperfection.
The process transforms much loved, worn items into a beautifully crafted, new piece of art. It is a chance to live a more sustainable way and to rescue objects which would otherwise be discarded.

In this 4 hours step by step hands-on workshop, you will learn the fundamental skill of Art Kintsugi method, following the principal of ancient Kintsugi utilising more accessible alternative materials (such as resin and gold metal) which enable us to complete the process within the class and safely.

At the end of the class, you will take home a piece of your own Kintsugi art and will be able to continue your practise to repair your own item at home.

Please note…

As this is a small group workshop, booking is essential.
Class is suitable over 18 years old.
Not suitable for pregnant person
You will be repairing a ceramic piece we will prepare for the workshop.
