What happens in this class?

Kintsugi is an ancient art form that celebrates the Japanese philosophy of the beauty of imperfection. It involves putting broken pieces of pottery back together by embracing the cracks using the gold mica powder blowing method.

In this class that honours the traditional Japanese art of fixing with gold, an experienced and friendly teacher from Art4Space will guide you every step of the way so that you leave with beautiful symbolic pottery to treasure.

As well as enjoying the hands-on experience with all the materials provided, you will also learn a little about the history and philosophy of Kintsugi…

Such a good class and lovely technique with bubbly atmosphere. Beautiful results at the end with an option to buy a kit to finish them off too! Great Scottish man hosting too

Loved the kintsugi workshop - Ellie was really clear with her instructions, and having John and Aysha moving around the space to support was really helpful. Thank you for a mindful afternoon.

Great experience, we really enjoyed our time during the class. It was a very pleasant afternoon and would definitely recommend it. The teacher John also made the experience very positive!

Natalie was a great teacher! I took my friend here as a Xmas present and we both really enjoyed ourselves - so nice to do an activity that doesn’t involve screens, I really loved my little kintsugi bowl.
Celia Mahtani - 8 February 2024
A lovely session! Natalie was so helpful and encouraging as we tried Kintsugi. Everything was provided included safety glasses and bags to transport our creations.
Sarah - 5 February 2024
Absolutely brilliant. Ellie and John were incredibly knowledgeable and the pieces I created were beautiful. I also learnt a lot about the history of kintsugi
Diane Moore - 4 February 2024
Really great way to spend an afternoon. Easy to achieve a finished piece or two under the expert guidance of the group leader ( although very much at ‘beginner level) Feel confident enough to carry on at home and improve my practice. Would highly recommend for anyone regardless of ability or age.

Spent a lovely afternoon learning and doing the art of kintsugi. Our teacher John was very friendly and helpful, providing clear instructions and demonstration and attending to all our needs and questions. The selection of pottery was good, and we had time for 2 to 3 items. Very relaxing and fun in a nice space.

A brilliant session run; talking through the beautiful philosophies and history around Kintsugi & coming out of the session with 2 excellent pieces of re-crafted ceramics. Highly recommend as a solo or as a couple!
Bernard Noel - 14 December 2023
Such a fun evening workshop! Enjoyable, playful and relaxing in a superb atmosphere, plus you go back home with your own 2 creations after a few glasses a booze to get you in the right mood after a long day at work! That was a total success for us :)
