What you can expect

Study the ancient Japanese technique of kintsugi, repairing broken pottery with a lacquer mixed with gold or other premium metals. Discover how this process incorporates cracks as a beautiful element of design and work with a master to perfect your own kintsugi.

Meet with a kintsugi artisan and learn about the fundamentals of this Japanese art that seeks to derive beauty from what is broken. A plain or attractive bowl or plate assumes a divine quality thanks to the golden lacquer, the shimmering veins emphasizing—rather than attempting to hide—the natural and beautiful cracking pattern.

Traditional lacquer was made with poison ivy, but you work with a less volatile substitute that allows for a safe experience. Work to repair your own piece of pottery with the help of a master, all while wearing samue, a casual traditional Japanese attire. At the end of your workshop, bring your repaired pottery home with you.
