About the Course
Kintsugi is the magical Japanese art of repairing broken pots with gold. This workshop will involve learning some traditional and modern skills of repairing ceramics.
The session will start with using handmade marbled paper, 24k gold leaf and gold thread as we learn about this ancient traditional art. You will have the opportunity to choose from a variety of ceramics which will be lovingly repaired using lacquer and gold metal powder. Each piece restored will be unique and beautiful.
This is a wonderful metaphor for life. The cracks and our experiences in life make us stronger, unique and beautiful.
This Workshop is set at the Dove Valley Centre nestled in the heart of the Peak District National Park.
