The Beauty of Imperfection

This workshop is inspired by the traditional Japanese art form of Kintsugi, meaning to join with gold. Participants will reassemble the shattered pieces of broken pottery and highlight the places of repair with richly colored gold lacquer. The process of repairing a vessel examines our relationship with fracture and imperfections, both real and symbolic, with compassionate reflection and a renewed perspective on what it means to be whole. Instead of disguising, discarding, or replacing the cracks in art or life, we can render the traces of imperfection with beauty and strength. 120 MIN | $
