Pottery by hand with Samantha Robinson
Time: Saturday// 10am – 11am
Sam Robinson’s pottery workshop will be a free workshop that showcases different and fun ways to create vessels from clay. Sam will demonstrate and assist our conscious community in making their very own pinch pots or slabbed vases which are a take on our signature illuminators. We invite all levels of experience – whether you’ve never touched clay before or if you’re a seasoned potter – to join Sam for an hour of creative and therapeutic art making. Sam will share her knowledge and skills and provide the materials and tools to give you a feeling for what it’s like in Sam’s Sydney based studio, where she brings her own pots to life. If you love the experience you can chat with Sam about the classes and workshops she runs in her studio and sign up to expand on your new found art practice or hobby.

High Tea With Mrs Woo workshop overview
GOLDEN MEND CIRCLE with Angela and Rowena from High Tea with Mrs Woo
Time: Saturday// 11:00-12:30
Cost: $20 pp
Angela and Rowena from High Tea with Mrs Woo will be holding a Golden Mend Circle – a kintsugi for clothing session – at The Conscious Space.
Borrowing from the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with gold alloy, this workshop shows you how to practice kintsugi for clothing as a way to cherish and extend the life of your loved garments by visible mending with gold threads.
In this 1.5-hour session, you will be shown a kintsugi mending technique to repair a hole in your favourite garment. Sewing needles and snippers, wooden darning mushrooms (or you can bring your own), golden-coloured fabric pieces and Japanese gold embroidery threads are supplied for you to share and use during this session.
This workshop is not aimed at teaching a perfect craft. It is to explore kintsugi for clothing as a philosophical practice to inspire a better, slower approach to life. It provides a space for you to make an action, to spend time with your clothes in the company of others, to explore the values and expressions of new and old clothing, and what it means to care for them.
PREVIOUS KNOWLEDGE: The basic skill of sewing on a button with needle and thread.
BRING: Bring your own garment with a small hole that you’ve been wanting to mend. We advise for the size of the repair to be no larger than a 20c coin so that you can complete the mend in this 1.5-hour session.
