Come and learn the Japanese art of kintsugi in these intimate workshops in Sydney, available at our pop up workshop in the Rocks and Marrickville art studio!

Kintsugi - the golden ceramic restoration - is the century-old Japanese art of repairing broken or cracked pottery with lacquer (Urushi) and powdered gold, silver, or platinum, giving a new life to when otherwise items would be thrown away. In recent years, this craftsmanship has been regarded as an important traditional art to influence modern art around the world.

This workshop embraces a zero-waste ethos with a focus on stepping back from the chaos of the city and uncertain times, to slowly mend and create what is broken and appreciate the beauty that can be found within imperfection.

In this Sydney workshop, you will learn what we call modern kintsugi, which follows the principal and method of traditional kintsugi using alternative materials which are less allergic and enable us to complete the whole process within the class.

We have seven beautiful ceramics made by a local Australian artist from Japan which will be turned to kintsugi art by your very own hands.

Each workshop runs for three to five-hours. If you wish to choose the specific ceramic (as in the pictures) please leave a note with the item number when you make a booking.

During the month of August, the workshop can be either in the Rocks Monster Mouse Pop Up gallery, or art studio in Marrickville.

Please note: We comply with COVID-19 safety measure and rules. Both venues are equipped with sanitiser and safeguard screen (on request) and we provide facial mask and gloves.

This workshop is supported by Innerwest Council and Monster Mouse Studios.
