Kintsugi for beginners

3 hours 1-10 people50 euros per person

The workshop teaches how to repair a ceramic with a modern version of kintsugi (the technique of fixing broken objects with gold) in which the ceramic is fixed with a fast-drying glue instead of the traditional clay. The first half of the workshop is dedicated to sticking the parts together, followed by an in-depth explanation of kintsugi, an overview of its centuries-old history and an explanation of its symbolic value. Once the glue is dry, the second part of the workshop is dedicated to finishing off the ceramic by applying golden powder. All materials are supplied by Kintsu Handmade, including a small ceramic to work on.
