About the Course

Half-day Japanese Kintsugi workshop

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. We will then work with 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.

Want to review this course?

I have to say,the course was excellent. Lovely teacher, felt so comfortable being in the class ,and learning the art of Kintsugi . Knowing that no matter what happens in our life, where we may feel broken and hurt that we can learn so much from our trials and can even benefit from them. The gold that we seek in the pottery together is the golden nuggets we gain from our trials. Thank you so much Pippa, you were amazing.!!!

I wasn't blessed with being good at art but that didn't matter at all. Pippa is such a fabulous artist herself and a great teacher too. She enabled me to make something beautiful and learn about an age old art. The venue was stunning and the workshop a real joy. Can't wait for the next one.

Had a fantastic time on this course. I loved learning a new craft and working with new materials. Pippa was a great teacher and her enthusiasm and love for this art form really rubs off on you. The venue was also beautiful. A relaxing and enjoyable course that I would definately recommend.

Had a great time on this course. With zero experience of arts and craft techniques, I was helped by easy to follow instructions, well prepared materials, a friendly fun filled atmosphere and a fabulous venue. Will definitely sign up for Pippa’s courses.

Attended Pippa’s Kintsugi course last week. Really enjoyed learning this form of art. Came home with three different pieces that I can display. Would certainly recommend this
