You will be walked through the process of repairing your own choice of pot and get helped to achieve your amazing creations. All materials are provided, including a selection of pots to choose your favourite from. There will be other ceramics made by potters in the studio you can choose to upgrade for an additional fee . Kintsugi (金継ぎ, "golden joinery"), also known as kintsukuroi (金繕い, "golden repair"),is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery by mending the areas of breakage with urushi lacquer dusted or mixed with powdered gold, silver, or platinum; the method is similar to the maki-e technique. As a philosophy, kintsugi is similar to the Japanese philosophy of wabi-sabi, an embracing of the flawed or imperfection. Kintsugi can relate to the Japanese philosophy of mushin (無心, "no mind"), which encompasses the concepts of non-attachment, acceptance of change, and fate as aspects of human life. Raku translate to the word “enjoyment”. Enjoy the process of repairing! Rakugi (Raku-Kintsugi) with be one way you can make sure not only you have a unique ceramic pieces but one of a kind in the world through this process after kintsugi it back together again.
