Private workshop opportunity in Canberra, on 21 August. For your group of three to 10 people.

This is an introductory workshop to learn the fundamental skill of the Japanese traditional art of ceramic mending, Kintsugi, understanding the philosophy of embracing imperfection and bringing out inner beauty.

In this class designed for beginners, your experienced teacher will guide you through the step by step technique of Kintsugi.

Everything is provided including ceramics to restore.

Please note that we will be using alternative synthetic materials, gold brass powder to be able to complete the whole process within the class and take home a finished item.

Enjoy a friendly and relaxing class that will allow you to connect with yourself and focus on the moment in the comfort of your home, office or venue of your choice.

Please note that some of the materials we use are synthetic, therefore the items can not be used as dinnerware with food directly on them.

Workshop is suitable for anyone over 16 years old. Not suitable if you are pregnant (due to use of glue and lacquer thinner).

Please note: Public dates for this class require at least 3 guests to run. In the unlikely event that we don't reach this number, we'll cancel the class; in this case we'll inform you and allow you to get a refund or reschedule, so please watch your email/SMS one day prior to the class.

Designer/maker of homeware products including tile art of SQUARE+ROUND Basin, MONO Tray and collaboration work of Kintsugi with international artists and artisan.
I studied interior design in London late 1990 and established solo trade business as Yoko Kawada in 2016.
My design is influenced by multiple countries I have been in the past searching materials and creative process both in traditional way and with technology.
I started to practice Kintsugi a few years ago in Japan to incorporate its unique nature of the Japanese traditional craft into my design.
I run Kintsugi workshops to share the joy of learning this Japanese craft full of surprises and contradictions.

Yoko was a fantastic teacher and we all thoroughly enjoyed her Kintsugi mending workshop. Yoko was very patient and walked us through each step of the Kintsugi process and provided interesting historical facts about the art. All materials were very high quality and Yoko was incredibly thoughtful to provide all necessary materials including gloves and masks. We were also very satisfied with the option to have the workshop at our own venue of choice. Thank you so much Yoko for an amazing experience and we are very excited to see our final product!
