This traditional Japanese art uses a precious metal – liquid gold, liquid silver or lacquer dusted with powdered gold – to bring together the pieces of a broken pottery item and at the same time enhance the breaks. The technique consists of joining fragments and giving them a new, more refined aspect. As such the mended cracks symbolise an event in the life of an object, which, rather than causes its destruction have contributed to unique beauty.

Given the current unavailability of traditional materials in New Zealand, this workshop will share the techniques for ceramic repair inspired by the Kintsugi process and philosophy.

Aiko Fukumoto is a Japanese Kintsugi artist and Qigong instructor who has lived and taught in New Zealand for over 30 years.

Prior to the course we will share details on what to bring, what to wear and other preparation information to make this an amazing experience.
