Good Riddance to Bad Rubbish

The world is getting more complex except in one respect, we still throw most of our waste in the ground. Is this our future, or will we develop new materials that are ultra strong and never need replacing.

Member Masterclass: Introduction to the art of Kintsugi

Monday 20 February 2017 11:00am - 5:00pm

Kintsugi is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with lacquer dusted or mixed with powdered gold, silver or platinum. Kintsugi is a very popular practice in Japan, however, it takes 3 weeks to repair a small area and fill with gold. Kintsugi can be seen to have similarities to the Japanese philosophy of wabi-sabi, an embracing of the flawed or imperfect.
