Kintsugi - Repairing for good.
Kintsugi (also known as Kintsukuroi) which loosely translates to 'Golden Joinery' is the age-old Japanese art form of repairing broken ceramics in a way that is often considered more beautiful than when it was when whole. This ancient technique is a true celebration of 'Wabi Sabi', the aesthetic appreciation of the broken, old or disregarded.
We'll take you through easy step by step instructions on how to piece back together your broken ceramics with lacquer and golden brass powder.
The technique we teach has been modernised so it's easy to try and apply and perfectly safe in contact with food .
