Kintsugi Workshop

Sunday 12 June 2022




Sun 12 June, 14:00-16:00


Main Street, Historic Villiage Tauranga, 159 17th Avenue

After two sold out workshops here in April, Ema Frost is returning in June for another Kintsugi Workshop. Her morning session has already sold out and she has added an afternoon session.

Get in quick! It's called kintsugi, or kintsukuroi. Literally, golden (“kin”) and repair (“tsugi”).

This traditional Japanese art uses precious metals – liquid gold, liquid silver or lacquer dusted with powdered gold – to bring together the pieces of a broken ceramic item and at the same time, enhance and make a feature of the new seams. You will take away your wonderful, finished work plus your knew skills which will enable you to further your own Kintsugi in your own time, as well as a new understanding of this beautiful art form, including historical background. You will also receive a Frosty Goodie bag.

This class is not just for budding or accomplished artists. It is for everyone to enjoy a relaxing evening of art and design with Ema.

Tutor: Ema Frost
Date: Sunday 12th June
Time: 2 - 4pm
Where: The Artery, Historic Village
Cost: $149

Materials supplied. Bring along a piece of your own pottery to restore. Ema will also have a few pieces available as back ups. Ema Frost is a very clever Kiwi Artist, whose illustrations and ceramic works sit in many of our country’s best galleries, and whose products and merchandise sell in the most stylish design stores and gallery shops.

Her style is enchanting - quirky, feminine and colourful, and clearly influenced by her travels throughout the world, usually off the beaten track. Ema is inspired by the mystery and magic found in Japanese and Maori Folklore, and this influence can be seen throughout her captivating and detailed images.
