About the event
During this workshop you will be practicing on pottery provided by us and lovingly joining together the fractured pieces using the Japanese Kintsugi method - applying the epoxy glue and gold powder 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 The ancient Japanese aesthetic of celebrating the beauty of imperfection and honoring the history of an object is artfully brought to life in the broken recognising that it's history should be shown off.
You will be guided step by step through the technique of mending each section piece by piece. This is a very relaxing, thoughtful process (not to be rushed), where each piece is applied and repaired gently.
At the end of the repair we will have some festive refreshments and end with a session on mindfulness and you will take away some relaxation techniques to practice at home, work etc...
A lovely afternoon to get you in the mood for the holidays!
