{CANCELED} Kintsugi Workshop @ Descanso Gardens
Mar 22 @ 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm

Please note that Kintsugi Workshop is canceled.

Learn this centuries-old practice by breaking, then repairing your own ceramic dish at this workshop. The finished piece can be displayed as art. Defined as “to repair with gold,” kintsugi is the Japanese art of mending broken pottery with a mixture of compound and gold powder. As a philosophy, kintsugi has similarities to wabi-sabi, an embracing of the flawed or imperfect.

$30 for members, $40 for non-members. No experience necessary, all materials provided. Ages 12 and up. Advanced registration required. Please note that this program is non-refundable.
