I am in the beginning stages of putting together a 3 day workshop on how to do kintsugi kitsuroi, in Nara, Japan.
Kintsugi is a process that requires a good grasp of the materials and techniques so the process of the workshop will be defined by some hands-on work, discussion of the materials, hands-on practice, discussion of the materials, etc.
Participants can expect a complete and thorough understanding of
Drying box, muro
Types of ceramics body
Crack, nyu, repair
Mixing of medium
Securing of pieces
Final pre-metal preparation
Final finish work
The workshop is limited to 5 seats.
My target date is the cherry blossoms of 2015, April, 2015
The cost of the workshop will be 100,000 yen excluding materials. Lodging is available for a reasonable price in Nara-machi, very close to the site of the workshop.
