Kintsugi workshop with Ema Frost

Traditional Japanese Broken Pottery Art

Date: May 25 – May 25Space: Workshop

Ema Frost is bringing her Kintsugi workshop back to Napier! 

Re-use, Re-Purpose & Beautify with Gold

“Hello Lovely locals… I will be holding another KINTSUGI WORKSHOP on Saturday 25th May in the Creative Arts Napier workshop
Have you ever wanted to try Kintsugi…. It’s an ancient Japanese art form where you fix broken pottery with gold – making its imperfections its beauty. – A truly wonderful philosophy to live by.  I’m sure there’s a few of you out there that have been saving a broken piece not knowing quite what to do with it, and if not I have plenty of back. So just bring yourselves and have some fun.” Ema Frost

It’s called kintsugi (金継ぎ), or kintsukuroi (金繕い), literally golden (“kin”) and repair (“tsugi”). This traditional Japanese art uses a precious metal – liquid gold, liquid silver or lacquer dusted with powdered gold – to bring together the pieces of a broken pottery item and at the same time enhance the breaks.
