Kintsugi: Japanese method of repairing broken pottery

UMOCA: 4pm – 7pm

Participants will learn about the history of Kintsugi, the ancient Japanese method of repairing broken pottery with gold. This method celebrates the imperfections and breaks in an object rather than trying to hide or cover it up. Participants are encouraged to bring their own ceramic bowls/pieces for the project that are either already broken or ready to break for the class. Additional bowls will be provided for those that need them, and all other supplies will be provided.
