Resilience and Nature: Bonsai and Kintsugi


Bonsai is the art of producing small trees that mimic the shape of real life trees. We can apply guidelines for observing and caring for bonsai to our own lives as we seek personal growth.

Kintsugi is a technique for repairing ceramics with lacquer and gold or silver powder. Kintsugi treats breakage and repair as part of the history of an object, rather than something to disguise. Broken pottery is brought back to life with a unique pattern tracing its breakages.

There will be presentations and demonstrations of bonsai and kintsugi. Information will be given on how to start these practices.
