Kintsugi repair workshop

Sunday November 26, 10am-1pm
Te Toi Uku – Crown Lynn & Clayworks Museum, Auckland

Kintsugi (also known as Kintsukuroi) which loosely translates to ‘Golden Joinery’ is the age-old Japanese art form of repairing broken ceramics in a way that is often considered more beautiful than when it was when whole. This ancient technique is a true celebration of ‘Wabi Sabi’, the aesthetic appreciation of the broken, old or disregarded.

We’ll take you through an easy hands-on step by step instructions on how to piece back together your broken ceramics with lacquer and golden powder.

The workshop is a hands on group experience. Materials will be provided to repair one object (you must bring your own item to be repaired). Limited number of places are available for this session.

Additional repair kits will be available to purchase at the end of the workshop.

Workshop by Yuka O’Shannessy & Yoko Shimoyama from An Astute Assembly
