Kintsugi Accessory Workshop for Beginner’s
Sunday 25 August 2019
Kintsugi is the Japanese ancient method of repairing broken pottery. In this fun and hands on class you will use that technique to make beautiful accessories! You will create accessories with different parts joint together using beautiful gold lines!
In this beginner’s class, you will learn some of the techniques of Kintsugi and basic knowledge required for making accessories.
You will make two pieces. Please choose from the below on the day:
One pair of pierced earrings (or ear clips)
One pendant top and one brooch
You can choose materials from ceramics, acryl parts, Beach glasses and metal parts.
The Kintsugi technique you’ll learn is the similar to 500 years ago, but they use modern materials (epoxy glue instead of lacquer, brass powder instead of pure gold) which doesn’t need as many processes as the traditional one. The appearance of the final product made using the modern technique is very similar to that of a Kintsugi piece made using the traditional technique.
