Details

This workshop is probably the only one where you are allowed to break things! The Healing Art of Modern Kintsugi is a workshop inspired by the philosophy of Kintsugi. Traditionally, Kintsugi is the Japanese art of putting broken pottery pieces back together with gold — a metaphor for embracing our flaws and imperfections. Gold & Behold founder's respect and adoration of Kintsugi inspired her to apply the philosophy to this workshop as a metaphor for healing and meditative art.Read Gold & Behold's Kintsugi journey here. Workshop OverviewIn this 2 hour session, you will learn to slow down and have a conversation with yourself, sit down with imperfections, face them headstrong and rebuild broken pieces, enabling us to be stronger than before.You will be provided with a piece of slightly imperfect ware to craft with during the workshop.Additionally, you may bring along 1 of your broken ware as long as it is 15cm(W) x 15cm(L) x 5cm(H) or smaller, broken into less than 10 pieces. We have to limit the size and the number of broken pieces in the essence of time.Min. 4 Pax RequirementDo note that we require a minimum of 4 pax to confirm a class. We will reach out to you 3 days before the workshop commencement in the event of low sign-ups. You may choose to reschedule for the next available workshop. FAQs 1.Do you break the pieces on purpose? If you do, is it still Kintsugi? We understand that traditional Kintsugi fixes pottery that has broken unintentionally. We believe in crafting an experiential workshop that provides self-discovery and reflection. 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. 2.What are the materials used?As an upcycling effort, you will be using beautifully curated pieces with slight manufacturing defects. You will also get exclusive access to an array of gold powders that are hand mixed–– something you will not find anywhere else! Every part of the workshop is designed and executed with great thought and considerations.3.End ProductThese pieces can be used as accessories, trinket dishes, brush/pen holders or decorative art. 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.4.Workshop SizeIt is limited to 8 pax per workshop to provide participants with undivided attention and as a part of the safety measures.5.Minimum ageRecommended for ages 10 and aboveRecording NoticeBy attending this event, you agree to be photographed and/or filmed and give permission to use your likeness in promotional and/or marketing materials.

What a great way to spend the morning! The instructor was amazing. Fun and very patient. Explained everything very well - interacted with everyone. Just an overall great experience. As a bonus she mentioned a great cafe upstairs so I was able to grab a coffee to top off an already great morning!

Your presence and an open mind :) All crafting materials will be provided!
Can i (1 person)​ attend the class with other people?
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.
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.
