Taught by studio potter Ranjit Dhaliwal from Studio Ranj, you'll learn how to use the 'kintsugi' technique of ceramic repair.
Kintsugi is the Japanese art of repairing broken ceramic by mending with a mixture of resin and gold-coloured powder which hardens to accentuate breaks and chips, breathing new life into a piece that would be otherwise destined for the bin.
"Kintsugi represents healing, resilience, and restoration." (BMJ Journal)
This kit is perfect for anyone looking to benefit from the healing, symbolic process of kintsugi or looking to repair much-loved pieces from their collection in a unique and beautiful way. Please note that this is for decorative use only and is not food safe.
Once you've followed the step-by-step instructions, you'll be on your way to mastering this tricky but addictive and rewarding technique that changes your perspective on ceramics.

What else do I need?
I used the kit to fix a gothic type chalice that snapped at the stem. The instructions were easy to follow and the mend looks fantastic.
The set is just what you need to get started and beautifully wraped in a slim durable box that can become the tool box for the activity There’s a clear manual and every component including PPE such as gloves come with it Thank you for this set that has inspired me to dig further into the art
Thanks so much! Fantastic kit - made Sabine’s Xmas. X
I loved the course and have now got to stop breaking things to use it
