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

Please note that the Kintsugi Workshop is sold out.

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.
