This workshop celebrates the broken or cracked everyday objects that we have. In this workshop you will have the opportunity to bring them back to life using a technique inspired by the Japanese art of Kintsugi.
Kintsugi, has similarities to the philosophy of wabi-sabi which embraces the ‘flawed’ or the ‘imperfect. In Kintsugi we recognise that an object can have beauty and purpose even after it has been damaged
