Jun Morooka is a kintsugi master. He is an expert in the Traditional Kintsugi method with natural lacquer (urushi) and gold. He has also developed his own method using modern material, bringing innovation to an ancient technique. He accepts commissions to repair broken pottery and ceramics with kintsugi.

Jun Morooka was born in Tokyo in 1959. He moved to Sydney in 1987 and in 2008 he started to manage a Japanese restaurant called JIPANG. He fell in love with kintsugi after watching a TV documentary. He decided to go back to Japan to train with five kintsugi masters in Kanazawa and Tokyo. In 2018, he established Kintsugi Australia in Sydney.
Kintsugi Australia is the only organisation in Australia completely specialised in kintsugi, offering private and group lessons, repair and kintsugi artistic creations. After completing the traditional course, the students can join the Kintsugi Dojo where they can continue to create their own work of art, and they can improve their technique to become kintsugi masters.
Jun Morooka teaches Traditional Kintsugi and Modern Kintsugi in Sydney, Melbourne and Newcastle. In December 2019, he exhibited his artwork at the Sydney Adventist Hospital in the Cardiac Rehabilitation Department. "Kibou" and "Negai" were displayed in the hospital to show that scars can become beautiful.
In June 2020, "Jikuu" was selected as a finalist in the 2020 Northern Beaches Art Prize - Open Category. The artwork was selected among over 800 entries and was displayed during an online exhibition (31 July - 30 September 2020) .

The location and teaching area worked extremely well too along with the unexpected kind hospitality of Japanese tea and treats midway through this lovely journey. Many thanks and I would be happy to recommend this course to anyone.

Such a wonderful evening learning something new. Hitomi and Jun are such passionate teachers I look forward to practicing some more Kintsugi soon.

Bob Noftall • Feb 2020


I have absolutely no craft skills but was intrigued by the technique. The instructor was charming and incredibly patient with me I was all thumb and awkward. That said, I left with a plate I love and am looking forward to showing friends. My sister who is quite crafty refuses to believe I did it ! Highly recommend.

Virginia Simpson-Young • Feb 2020


I received a voucher for this kintsugi class as a gift, and I wasn't really expecting much. What I experienced far exceeded my expectations! The kintsugi process was fascinating and surprisingly satisfying. Hitomi was a great teacher - very patient. I would recommend this class to anyone.

Sue McGovern • Feb 2020


Fantastic teacher, who provided everything necessary for the class (including apron and gloves), plus we took a break for fabulous Japanese tea. Can't recommend highly enough.

Maddie Koczanowski • Feb 2020


We had a beginner Kintsugi Workshop with Hitomi today and it was fantastic! She was very kind and knowledgeable, and guided us every step of the way so we’d be able to do Kintsugi at home. I’d love to do this class again. We were given Sencha tea, and Hitomi took photos that she sent to me afterwards. We were also given the gold/brass powder to take home afterwards. Am gifting this workshop to everyone I can

Gilbert Wong • Jan 2020


We loved the class! Jun made the class interesting through sharing his learning journey of the craft and his philosophy of kintsugi!

Jan Orman • Jan 2020


i did a beginner's Kintsugi workshop. It was a very exciting class. Jun is a patient and skilled teacher and I feel that after just one session I have acquired enough basic knowledge to try out the techniques he taught me at home. I am very inspired!

Pottery workshop review by Jan Orman

Jessica Pham • Jan 2020


Teacher was very nice and patient (which is important for beginners doing such a delicate craft). Really appreciated the personal touch of sharing his journey learning about Kintsugi and it was very obvious Jun was passionate about teaching others about the process, sharing where to buy the equipment. Also love the Japanese tea and kitkats!

Elizabeth Snedden • Jan 2020


The teaching style was very good as he demonstrated & then assisted when needed. We had class of 4 so room size was good. All materials provided. Also short break with green tea & a snack. Time seemed to fly by so was a surprise when class ended. Very pleasant time. Would be a good gift for a friend. Kintsugi basics are easy to learn.

Michael Santarossa • Jan 2020


Class is amazing. Jun is a great teacher, and I feel this is a craft I will continue on my own into the future!

Rachel Arthur • Jan 2020


Fantastic class and a fantastic, patient teacher! I plan to do more classes. Highly, highly recommend.

Mark Trinidad • Jan 2020


Teacher Jun is incredible! He taught us the deeper meaning of Kintsugi and how this beautiful art can be related to your own lives. Jun took us through the history of Kintsugi, then showed us a step by step of the entire process.
Highly recommend this class for any person who wants to experience authentic Japanese art first hand!

Kirsten McDonald • Jan 2020


I was really looking forward to the class and I was not disappointed. Jun explains the history and method of Kintsugi with care and patience. He explains the steps, the techniques, the materials and where to purchase them. I feel confident that I could repair a ceramic piece now. In time, I would like to learn the Traditional Kintsugi method. Thank you Jun.

Jonathan Yip • Jan 2020


We took the beginner's Kinstugi class with not much idea what to expect and were thrilled with the experience.
Jun was a fantastic teacher, who showed great patience, humour and friendliness.
We learned a lot from him and would definitely love to go back someday.

Carolyn Sein • Jan 2020


The class was wonderful - hands on, informative, fun and relaxed. Jun was a fantastic teacher. All materials were provided and we gained a deeper appreciation for the aesthetic, philosophy and technique involved in kintsugi. And! We all emerged with a beautiful original kintsugi ceramic piece! Would definitely recommend.

Elisa Walther • Jan 2020


It was awesome! I really enjoyed it. Would definitely recommend the workshop! The teacher was excellent!

Aron Fernandez • Jan 2020


Definitely a great class and a great experience to have.

Jun was both great at teaching the practical skill of Kintsugi, as well as the history and cultural significance of the practice.

All the materials were provided for and were great quality - getting to take home the plate you’ve made is pretty sweet as well.

Overall, a fun and engaging class that I would highly recommend.

Kim Vu • Dec 2019


This was one of our very first workshops we have been to and Jun was so helpful and accommodating. The workshop was very insightful where Jun taught us the history behind Kinsugi and also shared his journey into this amazing art.
Each step of the class was very thorough and detailed. Jun also gave us the opportunity to take photos of every step so we have something to visually look back at.
Highly recommend this workshop to those who are looking at doing something that is hands on and fun at the same time!

Katie Milton • Dec 2019

Great class.
I have been wanting to learn how to do kintsugi for a long time. I'm glad I finally found this class and took the step.
It's always exciting to learn a new skill.
I can now confidently fix some beautiful pieces of broken pottery I have. And a new skill to add to my toolbox.
Looking forward to learning traditional kintsugi.
Hope to be able to bring Kintsugi Australia to Canberra for a class.
Wonderful teacher with very clear instructions.

Awesome class. Learnt about the history and philosophy of Kintsugi whilst having fun! Would highly recommend.

I did the beginners Kintsugi Workshop. All materials were provided and my teacher, Kumi san, was excellent. Highly recommend this course if you’re interested in exploring this wonderful Japanese art and it’s philosophy.

Glenice Lee • Nov 2019


Master Jun is very kind and knowledgeable about the art of kintsugi! His wife, Hitomi is very hospitable and friendly (: I had a great time learning the art and also got to chit chat with both Jun and Hitomi. A great afternoon spent at their studio!

It was a very good class. I am sooooo happy! Very very nice. the teacher was fantastic.

Amanda Rutherford • Nov 2019


Jun was an amazing teacher
Had a wonderful time and I really enjoyed the class

Liana Vilcins • Nov 2019


Some feedback received from the class attendees:

“I thought that the Kintsugi Class was really well run and informative. I enjoyed the practical element of this along with the history.”
“Outstanding”

From my dealings with Jun prior to and on the day, he impressed as very professional and organised. He and fellow teacher, Hitomi Morooka, even made a visit to the location in Macquarie Park a week in advance of the class to check the travel time, see what the space was like and to let me know the few requirements he needed to set up the class.

I would recommend the Kintsugi class as a great corporate small team event to break up a day of meetings and learn something completely new. The philosophy behind the craft is also interesting and applicable to team building.

Thanks also goes to ClassBento for arranging the class to be held at our office, which worked so well for our team workshop!

Tammy Swe • Nov 2019


Lovely, highly enjoyable way to spend an evening. Jun was very knowledgeable and well-organised. We were able to complete the whole repair process, including an introduction to the Kintsugi philosophy, in the workshop, and walked away with our own beautifully refurbished piece of ceramic and lots of tips on sourcing equipment and materials to continue the Kintsugi journey at home. A wonderful experience.

The class was good fun and educational too. Our teacher was passionate and skilful, told us about the history of Kintsugi and led us through 2 hrs of simple instructions to produce a finished piece of art. The materials were all provided and the classroom was intimate and perfect for a small group session. I repaired a broken plate and now have it sitting on my coffee table looking beautiful. Inwould highly recommend the class and my teacher.

Venue was easy to find with parking close-by. Jun was a wonderful teacher, kind, generous and patient. He loves his art and has a great story. All materials were provided - they were high quality, well-maintained and all very accessible to duplicate the process at home. I loved every part of it!

Helen Williams • Oct 2019


This was a fantastic class. We enjoyed it so much.
Jun was a great teacher and spent lots of time explaining the process of Kintsugi.
We would certainly recommend this class.
There were only 4 people in the class as well which was great.

June was just amazing! Great knowledge and energy. I was the only lucky one at that time of the day and June has spent all his precious rime just on me! The venue was very accomodating. Conveniently positioned in the city.
The materials provided were great, especially the magic metal powder. Overall the class was great value for money
I’d love to take the next class to learn the traditional techniques.
Thank you June!

Samuel Dungey • Oct 2019


Jun was amazing, knowledgeable and happy to teach all the students. He made the class fun and wasn't sacred to give us extra time I'd we needed it. He was encouraging and ensured we all did our best. We made some really nice kintsugi pieces and we given all the skills and tools to make our own. It was amazing

A well-structured and informative class! Jun-san shared cultural as well as personal history about kintsugi, and was a very patient and encouraging teacher. He taught us a self-developed affordable and efficient technique using modern, easily sourced materials, and served us tea and snacks midway. Thank you!

Pottery workshop review by Meiying Saw

Deborah Rodrigo • Oct 2019


Jun was well prepared and ready to introduce us to the art of Kitsungi. We had a delightful and productive workshop learning about the history, modern adaptations, Jun’s practice and of course making our own Kitsungi masterpiece. The venue in Sydney’s CBD is central and comfortable. Jun has designed the session well where we progressed at a steady pace and even have a chance to take a morning tea of matcha tea and cookies. He is helpful when you’re stuck and is generous with his knowledge. Thank you Jun!

Bernadette Huang • Oct 2019


A great class that was paced well with all materials provided. Highly recommend to anyone who is curious about Kintsugi. My teacher Kumi was patient and very informative. I thoroughly enjoyed my session.

We had such a fantastic afternoon in Jun’s Kintsugi workshop. Jun was an excellent teacher - kind, patient and clearly very skilled and passionate about Kintsugi. I loved hearing about the philosophy and history behind the craft too. All tools were provided and Jun clearly demonstrated each step so I feel confident that I can continue at home. I would highly recommend this class to anyone interested in learning more about Kintsugi, it was a great experience.

Nirosha Paramanathan • Sep 2019


It was wonderful. It really was a very beautiful experience. We thoroughly enjoyed it. Thankyou to both of them.

Rodney Scherer • Sep 2019


I was welcomed by Jun and his wife a very pleasant couple. Jun provided a concise short history of Kintsugi and provided information about where to learn more in-depth knowledge about the development of the philosophy behind Kintsugi. The workspace is clean ( a little small by Australian standards however I would say it’s very much what I imagine a working space to be like in Japan. All materials were supplied. Jun was very encouraging in his teaching even though I thought I was botching it up. At the end of the day I left feeling enriched for the experience. I have no hesitation in recommending this class.

Jun and his wife made me feel very welcome and Jun's story of his journey into Kintsugi is really interesting, he is lucky to be able to do something he loves. I enjoyed his instructions as well as watching him work, it was a real pleasure. I have a nice display plate from my 2 hour workshop, and knowledge of the history of Kintsugi. Excellent afternoon well spent.

My partner and I did this class together and absolutely loved it. Jun was a great teacher, and so patient even when we went over time! Overall a great experience and would highly recommend.

Choi • Sep 2019


I had a great time learning about Kintsugi even though I have no previous experience with pottery! Jun sensei was patient and very informative about the art and the class was quite therauptical! Got to create my own plate to bring home!

Simone Kelly • Sep 2019


My teacher Hitomi was amazing! She was very patient and informative. I found this course to be great value for money with everything I needed supplied.

What struck me the most about Jun and Hitomi was their love for Kintsugi is so strong that they want to share their knowledge and show you how to make this an art form for yourself. The skills they teach you were designed so that you can take this art form and carry it on by yourself if you so choose to and if you don’t, you can continue with other courses and develop your skills.

I thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone!

Wenny Ly • Sep 2019


Jun-san's class was amazing and well-prepared. We learnt about Japanese history and culture, and he was kidn enough to show us his workshop area to see all of the other ceramics he is working on. So happy we left with a beautiful gift and new approach to life. 10/10!

Going to Jun’s studio reminded me of visiting my uncle’s home. It is a friendly atmosphere and he and his wife are genuinely interested in showing you their craft and so willing to teach. It was a surprisingly enjoyable and interesting evening.

Kyla Kohler • Aug 2019


This was the perfect class to relax and unwind and not think about the stresses of every day life. I chose this class because it is a way to focus on something peaceful and beautiful instead of my work and life pressures

Jun and Hitomi are very kind and knowledgeable. Jun was there to instruct help and guide through out the process in a calm and friendly manner .

Tea an a snack is also offered half way though which was a really nice touch and a good sign of hosting.

I could not recommend this course more


これはリラックスしてくつろぎ、日常生活のストレスについて考えることなく完璧なクラスでした。私がこのクラスを選んだのは、仕事や人生のプレッシャーの代わりに、平和で美しい何かに集中する方法だからです。

ジュンとひとみはとても親切で知識が豊富です。ジュンは、穏やかで友好的な方法で助けを指示し、プロセスをガイドするためにそこにいました。

お茶とおやつも中途半端に提供されていますが、それは本当にいい感じで、ホスティングの良い兆候でした。

このコースはこれ以上勧められませんでした

I enjoyed this class immensely. Jun is an excellent teacher, the class was very well organised with the best equipment, a wonderful pacing and great attention to detail. In addition, Jun is very encouraging which is wonderful for someone like me who has very little confidence in their creative skills.

Jocasta Giles • Aug 2019


I really enjoyed this class. Jun is an excellent teacher - with just the right balance of instruction, information and lots of freedom to put things into practice.

It was very relaxing as well.

I learned about the history of Kintsugi and made my first ever piece.

I definitely recommend this workshop to others. I will be back again for sure.

Highly recommended! Jun is a wonderful teacher and we learnt so much. We’re definitely coming again for more of his classes.

Audrey Limas • Aug 2019


Jun was a very patient and encouraging teacher. Before we started he let me in on the history of kintsugi so that I understand the philosophy of fixing broken things (which has a very profound meaning). During lesson, he kept assuring me not to worry about time or making mistakes, he simply would like the students to enjoy making the kintsugi calmly. I went a little over the time to finish my piece, and I’m so happy with how it turns out. Plus him and his wife were very warm people, we had a good chat in between the activities (and snacks too!). Thank you for the class Jun!

Jun was a fantastic teacher and lovely leader for our small class. Class sizes are small, so you get personalised attention. The workshop was lovely and the little break for tea and snacks was unexpected and nice to sit back while things dried. Very relaxing and informational. I think I'll go back for the traditional class next!

David Wan • Apr 2019


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!

Pottery workshop review by David Wan
FAQ
I have a small plate that I would like to repair. Can I fix it in the class?
Sam
If you learn the basics in my class, you can repair it yourself. But you can't repair your own dishes at the workshop, but I can give advice. The beginner class is suitable for quick restoration using epoxy resin. If you use lacquer and repair it in the same way as 500 years ago, we recommend my other class - the traditional gold Traditional Kintsugi class.
Can I eat off the Kintsugi plate we made in class?
Sam
Yes, you can use Modern Kintsugi plate but only for dry foods because the modern method uses chemical materials such like Epoxy glue. If you use Traditional kintsugi method, it’s safe for foods. We recommend you to use it occasionally not everyday use.
