Tomomi Kamoshita has been using a modern version of kintsugi technique for her works. Originally, kintsugi technique was for connecting broken pieces of ceramics using gold and urushi lacquer. However, it can be very time consuming to follow the traditional technique strictly, and there is a risk of allergic reaction to urushi.
In this workshop, she will show you a modern version of the technique that can be done quickly and safely. Materials used in the technique are epoxy resin lacquer and brass powder. There are two courses with different goal. So, please choose the course when you make a reservation.
1. Turning broken ceramics into beautiful ornament
2. Repairing your broken ceramics
