Step into the enchanting realm of Kintsugi, the revered Japanese art of restoring broken pottery. At our workshop, we invite you to delve into this whimsical craft that celebrates the beauty of imperfection and the rich history behind every shattered piece.
During the workshop, we’ll introduce you to the profound ethos of Kintsugi, where breakage and repair are honored as integral parts of an object’s story, rather than flaws to conceal. Under the guidance of our expert instructor, Daisy Cooper, you’ll learn the contemporary approach to Kintsugi using resin—a less allergenic, fast-drying, and cost-effective alternative to precious metals. With precision and care, you’ll master the art of joining fragments, transforming them into breathtaking and truly unique ceramics.
In a world dominated by disposables and throw-away culture, our workshop offers a refreshing escape—a space where the act of repairing and reusing cherished pieces is cherished itself. Experience the meditative joy of restoring pottery and revel in the celebration of resilience and sustainability.
Join us at Melbourne’s premier Kintsugi workshop, where the art of pottery restoration comes to life. Reserve your spot now and embark on a journey of creativity, mindfulness, and the pursuit of everlasting beauty.
