During this 'kintsugi' workshops you learn how to repair broken or damaged glass to re-use it.
An experience how satisfactying it can be to repair.
We start workshops:

for beginners in groups  of max 6  participants per workshop.

How it works:
After an introduction and a relaxation exercise we use the shards to compose a new glass and put the shards together with a special glue.

Getting the feeling to be fully concentrated during the course as well as developing your motor skills is an added value in the process and can be of use in many situations in your daily life by giving you more insight in how to tackle all kind of problems.

It's the experiece of letting go and starting over.
Of healing wounds and give meaning to scars.
An excellent way to greet 2022 as the start of new experiences.

The location of the workshops is in the heart of Amsterdam, just behind Dam Square.
Paleisstraat 107

Price is 45 euro. Duration 2 hour.

The only thing you’ll need to participate is a damaged glass.

(and don't worry... we have some extra glasses available-;)
More background info:

The 15th century Japanese Kintsugi technique shows how to repair cracked or broken pottery with gold leaf.

And by doing so deliberately highlighting each break instead of camouflaging it.
This fits perfectly with trends of today like imperfect design,eco and craft.

The beauty of imperfection, according to the (also) Japanese wabi sabi philosophy is the starting point of our workshops.
During the workshop we will get familiar with this Japanese techniques but also with crossovers based on old Dutch craftsmanship. 
And in order to give you the whole picture  I will also introduce you to the tools and techniques as used in the traditionally thriving handicraft culture of Eastern Europe.
