About The Event

Are you Japanese speaking? Join us for our Kintsugi class, the Japanese Art of Fixing Broken Pottery With Gold.

Most people would like damages to their broken items to be concealed and hidden by repair making the object look like new. But the Japanese art of Kintsugi follows a different philosophy. Rather than disguising the breakage, kintsugi restores the broken item incorporating the damage into the aesthetic of the restored item, making it part of the object’s history. Kintsugi uses lacquer resin mixed with powdered gold, silver, platinum, copper or bronze, resulting into something more beautiful than the original.

In a similar way, God can take our broken lives and make something beautiful out of it, if we let Him.
