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 which would be otherwise destined for the bin.
This kit is perfect for anyone looking to repair much-loved pieces from their collection or up-cycle a junk shop find.
Once you've followed the step-by-step instructions, you'll be on your way to mastering this tricky but addictive and rewarding technique which changes your perspective on ceramics.
For this course you just need some broken pottery of your own to work with (or an unwanted pot to break) and you do not need a kiln.
Included in the kit is:
- 1 x PDF step-by-step guide on kintsugi by Studio Ranj
- 1 x size 6 brush
- 1 x pair of adhesive bonding epoxy (please note Araldite brand shown in picture but products may vary)
- 1 x 100g pot of gold decorative dust
- 1 x adhesive applicator stick
- 1 x 5g putty portion
- 1 x plastic gloves
Please note due to the fast-drying adhesive component of this Kit, this product is not recommended for children and only ever to be used with adult supervision.
Online demos with the instructor will also be available later on in the year.
Ranj is a studio potter based at Turning Earth London. He specialises in smoke-fired ceramics and smoke-fires in his home in East London.
