Do you want to learn how to fix your broken ceramics? Do you have a broken mug you can't bear to part with? What about a precious plate that you want to repair?
Bring along your broken mug, plate, vase or anything ceramic and we will guide you on how to make it functional again! You with gain hands-on knowledge of ceramic repair and you will have the option of repairing your ceramic item in an invisible or visible way.
Our visible repair practice is inspired by the Japanese practice of Kintsugi which translates roughly "to patch with gold" - it's the art of repairing broken porcelain with golden glue. The philosophy behind this visible repair is that the break becomes part of the story of the object and therefore a part of the beauty. Why throw away your plate when you can highlight the cracks and give it a new lease of life?
