Kintsugi – Mizuyo Yamashita

Virtual Event Virtual Event

Kintsugi / ‘golden joinery’ is a way of restoring broken pottery that originated in the 15th century. Traditionally in Japan, the craftsmen use urushi: the natural lacquer to join, fill and cover the breakage. Mizuyo will teach how to fix potteries using the urushi - a new urushi which has been developed to cure in the climate outside East Asia. We will use brass powder instead of genuine gold as it is easier to work with.
