Hi Peter, Yes you definitely reserve the class for 1 pax since it's a join-trip workshop but do note that there is a minimum persons requirement (which is 4 pax) for the workshop to run. Hope it helps.
Would like to speak to someone about dates available. There seems to be only one date for the rest of the year

Hi Evelyn,  Yes, Gold and Behold has limited availability. You could let us know which month you wish to check the availability for and we can help to check with them :)
How is this kintsugi if the end product is not food safe? Kintsugi is meant to be food safe.
Question, 22 Jun 2022
Hi there, We understand that traditional Kintsugi fixes pottery that has broken unintentionally and with natural materials. In this workshop, the process of breaking an object is a symbolic representation of life's adversity, making it an essential part of the workshop. This workshop is only for making ceramic/end product as accessories, trinket dishes, brush/pen holders or decorative art only. Due to the adhesive solution and pigments used, these restored pieces are not food safe. Please do not microwave, bake or put the pieces in the dishwasher.
