Kintsukori Mending Workshop
Sundays, 17 & 24 September, 14:30-17:30
Kintsukori is a thousands year old pottery mending technique originating from Japan. The aesthetic embraces and highlights accidents in the life cycle of domestic objects.
During the first meeting we will fracture a few ceramic vessels and attempt to repair them using urushi lacquer, a refined tree resin. After the lacquer has cured for a week, we will meet again to refine and highlight the repaired areas with gold powder. Participants are requested to bring along a few small ceramic items.
Workshop fee (including all materials): 180 TL
Atorie bu was imagined over many breakfast tables with friends under the shade of a few trees. We are believers in the thoughtfully handcrafted, and true enthusiasts of Japanese aesthetics. Clay remains at the center of our attention, although we’re always interested in diverse materials and processes.
