Modern “Kintsugi” Workshop at Heath Clay Studio
November 14 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
We are offering a three-hour in-person kintsugi lesson at the Heath Clay Studio in San Francisco, California.
In this session, we will work with a broken plate or cup that each participant will bring, joining 3~5 pieces during the lesson. This simple project allows you to understand the basics of Kintsugi.
The cost of the class is $185. Please sign up from a payment form below.
Please contact [email protected] for any questions.
Note : The broken pieces are connected by mixing resin based urushi, brass powder, and thinner; each added in order, little by little. Please note that the repaired piece will take at least 24 hours to cure before use. High temperature food or drinks are not recommended with the repaired piece.
