Kintsugi Workshop

Upcoming Sessions: 
March 7, May 14. Check Event Calendar to register.

Step into the enchanting world of Kintsugi, an ancient Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with golden lacquer, and discover the beauty of imperfections. In this captivating workshop, led by Art Therapist Tara DeLuca, participants will immerse themselves in a meditative and transformative experience that celebrates resilience, acceptance, and the art of turning brokenness into a masterpiece.

During the workshop you will connect with your bowl, break it, confront the damage and take ownership of the pieces that remain by glueing them back together.

“Instead of masking the flaws, a Japanese way of seeing things is that by highlighting the cracks, the piece becomes stronger, more beautiful, and easier to use.”

$55/person. All materials provided.
