The lines and chips from the cracks, beautifully turned into gold are called "Keshiki“ meaning "View" in Japanese. Since ancient times in Japan, people have viewed imperfection as a natural phenomena and enjoyed discovering the beauty of being imperfect.
*Due to popular demand, this event is now fully booked.
WHAT THE WORKSHOP IS:
This is the 2nd of many workshop series hosted by CIBONE Brooklyn, Japanese art and craft lifestyle store located at 50 Norman in Greenpoint.
CIBONE will offer a workshop for authentic restoration using epoxy, following the same process as the traditional Kintsugi. Since no lacquer is used for this workshop, this is a quick and easy way to learn about Kintsugi restoration methods. If you have any precious bowls or cups that have been broken but cannot be thrown away, please come and find those "Keshiki".
Kintsugi is a traditional Japanese technique of repairing cracked ceramics by mending the damage with adhesive mixed with powdered gold.
We will provide all the tools and materials. Please bring only your broken bowls and cups.
