“If it is true that art mirrors life, then I think that kintsugi could be a reflection of what it means to be human: how we all get pounded every now and then, how we all break, how we all have to pick up our broken pieces and deal with them so that we might find a way to be whole again.”
Raymond Lauchengco’s take on the centuries-old art of kintsugi blends the philosophy of the ages with modern techniques. Using accessible materials to mend broken ceramic pieces, this three-hour face-to-face workshop is designed to be a calming and therapeutic exercise you can enjoy for years to come.
Our FIRST face-to-face workshops in this pandemic--but let's stay safe! This class will be held in Casitas de Victoria in Nasugbu, Batangas, in a breezy, open-air pergola where health protocols will be strictly observed.
In this workshop you will:
- mend and paint two (2) ceramic pieces using modern techniques inspired by kintsugi
- learn which materials, tools, and techniques to use to pursue the hobby
- spend a relaxing afternoon with like-minded individuals
- have access to post-workshop support via an online FB group moderated by Raymond
Kits are provided with all tools and materials needed for the class. Hearty snacks from The Victoria Pavilion will be served.
