Kat is doing a special offer for a 3 hour In Person Kintsugi workshops in Los Angeles!

Date and Time: Saturday July 30th 2022. from 2pm-5pm PST at an Undisclosed Location in West Los Angeles. (The address will be sent to participants).

You will get an e-mail with an invite to the venue a week before the workshop and kits will be provided at the workshop.

Included is:

  • A Kintsugi Kit with:
  • Modern Japan Lacquer made from Cashew Nut (safer and faster drying than traditional lacquer made from poison sumac)
  • Non Toxic Epoxy Putty
  • Bronze powder
  • Super Glue
  • Paint brush
  • Two kinds of sand paper
  • A shell palette for the lacquer

What you will need to provide:

  • Something that is broken or chipped (for first timers, we recommend something that is not too shattered. A chip or small crack will be perfect )

Other things Kat will provide at the workshop but you might like to stock up on at home to continue your work:

  • masking tape (that is not too strong)
  • Paint thinner (nail polish remover, turpenoid, or alcohol for cleaning can work)
  • rags or tissues to clean
  • News paper or a surface to work on that can get dirty

Kits are valued at $65 and can mend approximately 20 small pieces of broken pottery. * Kits will be brought to the workshop so all you need to bring is your broken ceramics and you can take your kit home with you. There is a 48 hour cancellation policy as spots are very limited in every workshop.

 Discover Kintsugi, an ancient Japanese artform that can not only bring your precious broken objects back to life but can also be deeply therapeutic, changing your life and the way you see yourself and the world.

Kat McDowell teaches a modern approach to Kintsugi using a new Urushi (lacquer) made of cashew that is much safer and faster drying than traditional Kintsugi.

Her 3 hour workshops will walk you through step by step taking your broken piece of pottery and transforming it in to a new unique piece of art that tells a story only YOU can tell.

Spaces are limited and it will be best to sign up at least 3 weeks in advance for people outside of the United States to ship you the kit in time.

For any questions please feel free to reach out to Kat using the contact form below.

 

How many items can you mend with this kit?

This Kintsugi Kit will have enough putty to mend 10 small ceramic pieces, and the lacquer will be enough to mend at least 30-40 small small pieces.
