Japanese Kintsugi Workshop

Repair and transform broken ceramics



2 hours Class size 1 to 16 (public classes), 12 to 40 label $160


Welcome to the whimsical world of Kintsugi, the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery. This craft treats breakage and repair as part of the history of an object, rather than something to disguise. Transforming imperfection into beauty.

After touching on the ethos behind Kintsugi, Daisy Cooper will guide you through the modern version of the craft using Urushi resin. This process is less allergenic, quick drying and a budget-friendly alternative to using precious metals. Practice carefully joining pieces together, creating beautiful and unique ceramics. In a world of disposables and throw away culture, unwind in an experience where repairing and reusing treasured pieces is celebrated!

Please note: This class requires at least five students to run. In the unlikely event that we don't get this number of students, we'll cancel the class and fully refund you and inform you via email, so please watch your email a few days prior to the class



Aside from this class, Work-Shop also has the following coming up:

        • If you do not have any pieces yourself these can be organised for you at an additional cost of $5 a piece. Please select these additional extras at checkout.

Having studied fine art in Scotland, Daisy moved to London to pursue a career in the arts. After working for arts charities and organizations she went traveling and fell in love with ceramics. On returning she took a course in ceramics and from there has built up her practice and business.

Recently moving to Melbourne, her practice is very evolving and growing from new experiences and environments around her. The landscapes and natural environments around her influence her work everyday, drawing textural and colour inspiration for each collection.

Her work is stocked in independent shops across Australia and the UK, as well as being featured in publications and used by food stylists across the world.

After not having done a workshop in years, this was really enjoyable, plus helped I was interested in the task. I loved Daisy’s approach, as she was very skilful in the art of Modern Kintsugi and through great guidance we were able to follow her lead and create beautiful pieces. Was very relaxed and mediative and would highly recommend doing this workshop.

SO GOOD. Daisy was amazing. She was very cute and lovely and made everyone feel like they were doing a great job in an honest way. The materials were great :) it was unfortunate that the coronavirus delayed the takeaway materials but daisy explained everything to us :) Great class, I will definitely use this again. Great workshop, so open, well lit and beautiful and there was a dog there which was my favourite. Thankyouuu
