Beginner's Kintsugi Half Day Workshop

Beginner's Kintsugi Half Day Workshop

Repairing method and philosophy of kintsugi

Japanese Culture



1 - 6




You will learn the wonderful and historical art of Kintsugi, which dates back to 15th century Japan. The philosophy of Kintsugi is that an object is sometimes broken. However, this is part of its life, and rather than throw it away it can be repaired and the cracks remain to show its history.

This is a beautiful art to learn while also helping with sustainability as you are not throwing things away!

In this beginners class you will learn some of the basic techniques of Kintsugi, similar to those used throughout its 500 year history. In this class modern materials are used so it can be learnt by anyone with ease.

You will be able to take home your repaired creation which will be very similar to the Kintsugi piece using the traditional technique.

After completing the beginner's course, you will be able to learn traditional kintsugi. Traditional kintsugi courses range from basic to advanced courses.
Classes start at 10:30 13:30 18:00 every day except Wednesday.

Knowledge of Kinstugi from 5 masters

5.0   (1)

Jun moved from Tokyo, Japan to Sydney, Australia in the mid 80', but it was much later until he fell in love with the art of Kinstugi in the mid 2010's where he returned to Japan to pursue more knowledge in the art of Kinstugi.

Since 2015 he has learnt the art from five different masters of the art in Japan. He has now come back to Sydney Australia to teach everyone of all ages wishing to learn and develop their skills in Kinstugi.

He founded Kintsugi Australia in 2018 to spread the knowledge and beauty of kintsugi to Aussies and the world.

An enjoyable and fantastic experience! I would definitely recommend this to all my friends. Jun (the teacher) is very kind and friendly, leading you through the history, philosophy of Kintsugi with detailed and patient instructions for your hand-on experience. After 2 hours of workshop with chatting and laughing, you will have your own beautiful Kintsugi ceramics, a piece of art that you can display or use. And after the beginner workshop, now I feel like I can repair my family and my friends’ broken ceramics. I certainly enjoyed the entire experience, including the lovely tea break and Japanese cookies!
