Do you have a broken mug you can't bear to part with? What about a precious plate that you want to repair? Join the Remade Network for a ceramic repair workshop this October at Remade in Govanhill.
Bring along your broken mug, plate, vase or anything ceramic and you will be guided on how to make it functional again! You will gain hands-on knowledge of ceramic repair and you will have the option of repairing your ceramic item in an invisible or visible way.
The visible repair practice is inspired by the Japanese practice of Kintsugi which translates roughly to "patch with gold” - it’s the art of repairing broken porcelain with golden glue. The philosophy behind this visible repair is that the break becomes part of the story of the object and therefore a part of the beauty. Why throw away your plate when you can highlight the cracks and give it a new lease of life?
This event is ticketed because there is limited space so if you can't attend please let the Remade Network know at least 3 days in advance. If you have any questions regarding the workshop or the item you wish to repair, get in touch with LC at email@example.com.
Remade Network campaigns and trains communities to set up reuse and repair centres. Their vision is to make repair education affordable to all - they will be developing more online workshops for you.
