Why Folk?

Why Folk?

The Japanese developed an art form they call kintsugi. When something breaks, instead of tossing it out as broken, as waste, kintsugi not only repairs the valuable broken item, but beautifies it by placing the pieces back together and embellishing the cracks with precious metals like liquid gold or silver. The embellished cracks serve as a reminder of the object’s continued value despite its scars; the essence of resilience.

In much the same way, learning folk skills fosters the art of individual resilience.
