Sustainability in Ceramics with Dr Wendy Gers

Virtual Event Virtual Event

Specially for London Potters, to kick off our 2022 series of educational events exclusively for our members, Dr Wendy Gers will be presenting a pair of lectures on sustainability in ceramics. Lecture 1: From Sourcing Clay to Shipping.


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.
