Toronto-based ceramic artist Alison Brannen will show you how to beautifully repair ceramics using a method inspired by Japanese kintsugi. No previous experience is necessary!
In this workshop, you’ll repair one of your own pieces using epoxy and gold mica powder, rather than the traditional lacquer used by Japanese kintsugi masters. All repair materials are provided. Just bring a broken ceramic object that you want to work on. Small pieces such as bowls, cups, or dessert plates that are broken in 2 – 3 pieces work best. Please save those large bowls, platters, and shattered mug handles for the advanced class!
You’ll be able to take home your repaired ceramic piece immediately following the workshop.
