After four sold-out workshops in 2020, kintsugi practitioner and teacher Yuka O’Shannessy returns to show you how to piece your broken ceramics back together with beauty.
Kintsugi (or Kintsukuroi) is the Japanese art of repairing broken objects. Loosely translating to ‘golden joinery’, kintsugi values breakage and repair as part of the history of an object, using lacquer and powdered metal to make visible repairs.
Tokyo-born Yuka O’Shannessy is dedicated to connecting people and craft. As the founder of Public Record, she shares work by local and international artisans and teaches traditional techniques that help preserve goods for life.
- Please bring your own broken object; it could be a plate, cup or vase that holds meaning for you, or head to an op-shop and break one yourself. Ensure you don’t pick something too complicated. Yuka will supply some broken ceramics as well just in case.
- Refreshments and a complimentary snack will be provided.
Please note: At Level 2, the programme will go ahead, but with reduced capacity. Those who were later in making their bookings, may not be accommodated within this reduced capacity and will be refunded. At Level 3, the programme will be cancelled, and refunds made.
