Kintsugi’ (金継ぎ) is a Japanese technique for repairing pottery with seams of gold. The word means ‘golden joinery’ in Japanese. This repairs the brokenness in a way that makes the object more beautiful, and even more unique, than it was prior to being broken. Instead of hiding the scars, it makes a feature of them.
A few months ago, we interviewed Ian Beckett (St Stephen’s Church, Heart 4 Harlow) at the Playhouse about how it can help Harlow people.
But now we hear there are actual courses that residents can attend.
We went down to St Stephen’s Church in Bush Fair to find out more from Ian.
