Workshop

Kintsugi Workshop (Reservation Required)

金継ぎワークショップ(事前予約制)

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

 呼び続ぎ:複数のパーツを組み合わせて箸置きを作る

2. Repairing your broken ceramics

 金継ぎ:割れ、欠けた陶器を金継ぎする

 

*Please leave the course number in the note area in the process of payment.
