In collaboration with the Potter’s Guild of Las Cruces, the Museum of Art will feature a Kintsugi Workshop at 2pm on Saturday, August 13.
Kintsugi is the ancient Japanese art of golden joinery. In Japan, rather than disposing of broken ceramics, craftsmen will restore the pieces using lacquer mixed with gold, silver, or platinum. The Museum of Art will provide broken ceramics for repair, but people are also welcome to bring their own.
The current exhibition, Nature, Tradition, and Innovation: Contemporary Japanese Ceramics from the Gordon Brodfuehrer Collection continues through October 15, 2016.
Admission to the Museum of Art is free. The museum is located at 491 North Main Street and is open Tuesday through Friday from 10am to 4:30pm, Thursday from 10am to 8pm, and Saturday from 9am to 4:30pm. For additional information, visit the website at: http://las-cruces.org/museums or call 575.541.2137.
If you need an accommodation for a disability to enable you to fully participate in this event please contact the museum 48 hours prior to the event.
