Ema Frost is a very clever artist, whose illustrations and ceramic works sit in many of Aotearoa’s best galleries, and whose products and merchandise sell in the most stylish design stores and gallery shops. Her style is enchanting – quirky, feminine and colourful, and clearly influenced by her travels throughout the world, usually off the beaten track. Ema is inspired by the mystery and magic found in Japanese and Maori folklore, and this influence can be seen throughout her captivating and detailed images.

It’s called kintsugi (金継ぎ), or kintsukuroi (金繕い), literally golden (“kin”) and repair (“tsugi”). This traditional Japanese art uses a precious metal – liquid gold, liquid silver or lacquer dusted with powdered gold – to bring together the pieces of a broken pottery item and at the same time enhance the breaks.

You will take away your wonderful finished work, plus your new skills which will enable you to further your own Kintsugi in your own time. You will also receive a Frosty Goodie bag.

This class is not just for budding or accomplished artists. It is for everyone to enjoy a relaxing day of art and design with Ema.

What you will take away:
A finished artwork piece
A understanding of Kintsugi
Knowledge and history of this beautiful art form.
