Experience the Japanese art of kintsugi by breaking, painting, and repairing a ceramic bowl, symbolizing resilience and beauty in repair.

Description: Join us for a profound journey of healing and transformation through the ancient Japanese art of Kintsugi. In the safety and support of this workshop, designed specifically for women overcoming the effects of trauma, you’ll embark on a path of self-discovery, empowerment, and renewal.

Workshop Highlights:

  • Exploration of Kintsugi: Immerse yourself in the wisdom of Kintsugi, the art of repairing broken ceramics with the radiant beauty of gold. Learn about the profound philosophy behind this ancient practice, which reminds us that just like life, we too can experience breaks and fractures. However, through careful and loving repair, we can uncover new beauty, strength, character, and a unique kind of wholeness.
  •  Select and Mend: Each participant will select a ceramic bowl and have the opportunity to intentionally break it, symbolizing the challenges and trauma they’ve faced. Guided by Kintsugi principles, you will then repair your bowl with gold, metaphorically representing your own journey towards healing and resilience.
  • Sharing and Reflection: We encourage participants to share their experiences, insights, and the symbolism behind their mended bowls. This sharing circle fosters connection, empathy, and a sense of solidarity among women who are on their path to healing.
    No prior art experience is required. All materials will be provided.Discover the gold within your own experiences, and let us mend together, turning trauma into resilience and celebrating the unique beauty that arises from healing.
