It is such a delight to be able to share these Kintsugi workshops presented by Yuka O'Shannessy & Yoko Shimoyama of An Astute Assembly in Auckland.
Kintsugi involves repairing broken objects (mostly ceramics) with a traditional Japanese technique - lacquer and golden powder that often leaves them more beautiful than in their original state. This involves changing a mindset from the modern 'disposable' way to a tradition of repair and appreciation for what you have.
Over the course of the Necessary Traditions festival, Yuka & Yoko from An Astute Assembly are running 6 workshops:
