Kintsugi Breaking and Mending Workshop (FULL)
w/Glenda Goodrich $70
Where Grief, Gratitude, and Beauty Coexist.
Come join us as we delve into the art of breaking and mending. Participants will choose a bowl to break and mend as a ceremonial metaphor for the woundings of life and the beauty that comes from its broken places. The act of breaking a bowl and mending the “scars” with gold is based on the Japanese art of Kintsugi. Kintsugi teaches us we cannot go back to the way we were before, but instead move forward with our woundings and the beauty they can bring. Students will leave with a ceramic bowl with golden mended fault lines as a reminder of the places where grief, gratitude, and beauty coexist, as well as the opportunity to reframe old ideas about loss and adversity. Workshop fee includes ceremony, instruction, bowls, and all materials.
