Activity description :

Kintsugi is the art of repairing Japanese ceramics with a gold joint. Come and learn how to repair and enhance a broken object.

Course of the workshop (1h30):

  • Welcome, introduction to the workshop and choice of beverage (included).
  • Explanation of the origins of Kintsugi and its philosophy. You'll discuss the meaning of Kintsugi and your own life experiences or those of your broken parts.
  • Explanation of how the workshop works: the traditional Japanese method can't be used in just 2 hours, so you'll use resin glue and brass powder to give a shiny, golden appearance.
  • Object repair: a broken piece brought from home or provided by the workshop.
  • At the end of the workshop, you'll leave with your superb creation, upcycled and sublimated!

Whether for yourself or as a gift, this artisanal workshop is perfect if you love creative hobbies and crafts!
