KINTSUGI: The Beauty of Imperfection

Literally meaning, ‘to join with gold’, this traditional Japanese art reassembles the shattered pieces of a broken piece of pottery with a richly colored gold lacquer. Create your own Kintsugi vessel in this workshop that examines our relationship with fracture and imperfections, both real and symbolic, with compassionate reflection and a renewed perspective on what it means to be whole. Instead of disguising, discarding, or replacing the cracks in art or in life, we can render the traces of imperfection with beauty and strength. $
