In-person classes are permitted to operate in Victoria, under the state government's guidelines

Your host, Work-Shop is COVID-19 aware

This means that this teacher won't run a class if they've had flu symptoms in the last 14 days, and will adhere to relevant state restrictions (e.g. on maximum number of students per class)

Also, this class has a flexible cancellation/rescheduling policy, so participants are encouraged not to attend if they are unwell

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:


Add-ons available for this class

Ceramic Object ($10)

You can add these when you book (optional).
 
What you'll get

  • A gold kintsugi repair kit which you’ll get to take home

  • 2-3 mended ceramic pieces

  • Learn how to mend broken ceramics using gold resin


What to bring

  • 2-3 ceramic pieces that are broken.

    • 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.

    • Alternatively, we suggest visiting a local op shop to pick up some ceramics to bring along if you do not have anything broken in your home. These can be broken at the workshop as well before you begin the Kitsugi process.

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.

From 3D printing and stencil art through to music and gardening – life skills and personal development through to cooking doughnuts and mushroom foraging, we offer a broad range of fun and creative short courses to suit our time poor lives. We will inspire you to pick up that pen, paintbrush, hammer or sewing machine and flick the switch that will kickstart a whole new way of life.

Community values lie at the heart of our project. We collaborate with local artists and industry experts to teach classes and utilise local suppliers for any materials needed. We also provide a creative environment for emerging artists to produce and sell work, and meet like minded individuals. Work-Shop will be a space for everyone, with a rotating schedule of art shows, information nights on local issues and a whole range of events and community initiatives.

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
