Kintsugi for Modern Life

Kintsugi workshop for Sydney Craft Week 2019

Particiapte in a Studio Enti Kintsugi workshop as part of Sydney Craft Week!

This workshop will explore and discuss the traditional art of Japanese Kintsugi and bring a modern spin to the ancient repair technique.

The philosophy of kintsugi sees the broken piece brought back to life with a new level of beauty, both aesthetically and through the trauma it has experienced. The application of gold (or silver) to the exposed vein of the mended piece creates a visual representation of a mended scar and each process – the make, the break and the mend – creates a story that adds to the value and beauty of the object.

In the workshops participants will practice an adapted method of this technique using modern glue and powders.

There will be a selection of broken pieces they can choose from to repair, as well as bringing their own broken treasures to work on.

All materials will be supplied and each participant will receive a small kit that they can take home to continue their kintsugi adventures.
