Don't throw away your chipped ceramics, learn Kintsugi in this online workshop and create beautiful art out of broken goods.

Kintsugi is the Japanese art of mending broken ceramics and filling the cracks with gold or other metallics. It's a beautiful slow art form that gives the heart time to reflect and connect. It's a truly transformational experience and participants have come out of this more hopeful and with a different perspective on the world.

If you're looking for mindful hobbies, upcycling DIY projects, or fun things to do at home, this introductory Kintsugi workshop is a peaceful and relaxing craft to explore. You will receive a craft kit with all of the supplies you need to get started on this art form. Your instructor will guide you through the process over a live stream so you can create confidently.

This class also makes for great team-building activities, birthday party ideas, and more!

What a wonderful class!
I’m so grateful to have been able to learn Kintsugi from Kat online.
I’ve been dreaming of learning this art for years and was so pleased to finally find a class that was so accessible. I no longer fear my precious ceramic treasures breaking - I only wish I had saved all the ones that broke in the past
