KINTSUGI WORKSHOP with Ema Frost
Join us for a lovely morning learning the magical art of Kintsugi with Artist Ema Frost in this new workshop. You may bring along a piece of your own pottery to restore in this beautiful style and we will have some additional pieces as back up if you don't have your own. This class is suitable for all skill levels.
Inspired by the mystery and magic found in Japanese and Maori Folklore Ema Frost is an artist whose illustrations and ceramic works sit in many of NZ’s best galleries.
It's called kintsugi (金継ぎ), or kintsukuroi (金繕い), literally golden (“kin”) and repair (“tsugi”). This traditional Japanese art uses a precious metal – liquid gold, liquid silver or lacquer dusted with powdered gold – to bring together the pieces of a broken pottery item and at the same time enhance the breaks.
You will take away your wonderful finished work, plus your new skills which will enable you to further your own Kintsugi in your own time. You will also receive a Frosty Goodie bag.
This class is not just for budding or accomplished artists. It is for everyone to enjoy a relaxing evening of art and design with Ema.
What you will take away:
A finished artwork piece
A understanding of Kintsugi
Knowledge and History of this beautiful art form.
