About this event

About Kintsugi

The Healing Art of Modern Kintsugi is a workshop inspired by the philosophy of Kintsugi.

Traditionally, Kintsugi is the Japanese art of putting broken pottery pieces back together with gold — a metaphor for embracing our flaws and imperfections.

Our respect and adoration of Kintsugi inspired us to apply the philosophy to this workshop as a metaphor for healing and meditative art.

Workshop Overview

In this 2 hour session, we will learn to slow down and have a conversation with ourselves, sit down with our imperfections, face them headstrong and rebuild our broken pieces, enabling us to be stronger than before.

This experiential workshop is probably the only one where you are allowed to break things! The process of breaking an object is a symbolic representation of life's adversity, teaching us that sometimes life slaps you in the face. When it does, we cannot control if we will shatter into pieces or perfect halves.

We can only face our broken pieces headstrong and create something stronger and more beautiful out of adversity.

As part of upcycling efforts, you will be using beautifully curated pieces with slight manufacturing defects, and also get exclusive access to an array of gold powders that are hand mixed by the vendor –– something you will not find anywhere else!

*These pieces can be used as accessories, trinket dishes, brush / pen holders or decorative art. Due to the adhesive solution and pigments used, these restored pieces are not food safe. Please do not microwave, bake or put the pieces in the dishwasher.

The workshop will be conducted via Zoom.
