About the Course

One-day Japanese Kintsugi Workshop at Chatsworth House

Kintsugi is the magical Japanese art of repairing broken pots with gold. This workshop will involve learning some traditional and modern skills of repairing ceramics.

The session will start with using handmade marbled paper, 24k gold leaf and gold thread as we learn about this ancient traditional art. We will then work with a variety of ceramics which will be lovingly repaired using lacquer and gold metal powder. Each piece restored will be unique and beautiful.

This is a wonderful metaphor for life. The cracks and our experiences in life make us stronger, unique and beautiful.

The Kintsugi package includes :

Beautiful handcrafted ceramics to work with
All craft materials and packaging for your finished piece
Tea, coffee and fruit juice on arrival
Chatsworth still and sparkling water
Mid-morning break with tea, coffee & mini pastries
Two-course lunch prepared by the Chatsworth chefs
Mid-afternoon break including tea, coffee & biscuits
WIFI
Complimentary parking

The course will take place in The Burlington Room accessed from the stables courtyard. We will start at 10.00 am and finish at 3.30 pm so you have the opportunity to explore the beautiful house and garden.

Chatsworth House contains works of art that span 4,000 years, from ancient Roman and Egyptian sculpture, and masterpieces by Rembrandt, Reynolds and Veronese, to work by outstanding modern artists, including Lucian Freud, Edmund de Waal and David Nash.

There are over 30 rooms to explore*, from the magnificent Painted Hall, regal State Rooms, restored Sketch Galleries and beautiful Sculpture Gallery.

This is sure to be a day you will cherish.

My Kintsugi artwork is featured in the October 2019 issue of Uppercase Magazine.

"Absolutely every aspect of the day was wonderful. The course surpassed my expectations in every way. As someone who is not at all artistic, Pippa's teaching style and meticulous attention to detail in the preparation of resources ensured that I felt really delighted with the artwork I produced. The pace of the day was just right and the amazing cakes provided as part of the experience were above and beyond what I think any of us expected. I have come home feeling thoroughly uplifted and inspired. Thank you!"
