About The Healing Art of Modern Kintsugi
This workshop is probably the only one where you are allowed to break things!
The Healing Art of Modern Kintsugi is a workshop inspired by the philosophy of Kintsugi.
Traditionally, Kintsugi is the Japanese art of putting broken pottery pieces back together with gold — a metaphor for embracing our flaws and imperfections.
Gold & Behold founder, Winnie’s respect and adoration of Kintsugi inspired her to apply the philosophy to this workshop as a metaphor for healing and meditative art.

Additionally, you may bring along 1 of your broken ware as long as it is 15cm(W) x 15cm(L) x 5cm(H) or smaller, broken into less than 10 pieces. We have to limit the size and the number of broken pieces in the essence of time.
Let's make a mess, embrace flaws and heal as a stronger individual through the philosophy of Kintsugi.
We provide restoration services too and you can check it out here
1. Do you break the pieces on purpose? If you do, is it still Kintsugi?
We understand that traditional Kintsugi fixes pottery that has broken unintentionally. We believe in crafting an experiential workshop that provides self-discovery and reflection. In this workshop, the process of breaking an object is a symbolic representation of life's adversity, making it an essential part of the workshop.
2. What are the materials used?
As an upcycling effort, you will be using beautifully curated pieces with slight manufacturing defects. You will also get exclusive access to an array of gold powders that are hand mixed–– something you will not find anywhere else! Every part of the workshop is designed and executed with great thought and considerations.
3. End Product
These pieces can be used as accessories, trinket dishes, brush/pen holders or decorative art. Due to the adhesive solution and pigments used, these restored pieces are not food safe. Please do not microwave, bake or put the pieces in the dishwasher.
We provide food-safe restoration services here
