BADA Workshop: Young Friends: Kintsugi for beginners with Sujin Jung

BADA Offices, First Floor, 21 John Street, WC1N 2BF BADA Offices, First Floor, 21 John Street, WC1N 2BF


Join Sujin Jung, professional ceramic and related materials conservator for an enjoyable evening of Kintsugi restoration. From working with the team at the Courtauld Institute, prior to their re-opening in 2021, through to her current position working on precious antiques at BADA recommended service providers, Plowden and Smith, Sujin has a wealth of knowledge and insight into the industry.

Sujin will teach you about the beautiful art of “joining with gold”, an age-old art which embraces the beauty of flaws and celebrates fragility. Attendees will learn about the craft and meaning behind Kintsugi and repair their own shattered ceramic, to take home and treasure. Whether you are interested in the world of ceramics restoration, collecting antiques or simply enjoy the aesthetic of beautiful things, this workshop is for you. Please note, attendees will be required to bring their own ceramic for the kintsugi workshop. All other materials will be provided and are included in the cost.

These events are introductions to the trade and the professions for which they provide tasters. Our Workshop hosts are experts in their professions, with years of experience and we would not recommend that you carry out your own restoration work but always contact the BADA who can put you in touch with a professional for advice and guidance.
