***This Kintsugi accessory workshop is a private setting for each group (from 1 person)***

Kintsugi is the Japanese ancient method of repairing broken pottery. In this fun and hands on class you will use that technique to make beautiful accessories! You will create accessories with different parts joint together (継ぎtsugi) using beautiful gold(金Gold) lines!

In this beginner’s class, you will learn some of the techniques of Kintsugi and basic knowledge required for making accessories.

You will make two pieces. Please choose from the below on the day:
- One pair of pierced earrings (or ear clips)
- One pendant top and one brooch

You can choose materials from ceramics, acryl parts, Beach glasses and metal parts.

The Kintsugi technique you’ll learn is the similar to 500 years ago, but we use modern materials (epoxy glue instead of lacquer, brass powder instead of pure gold) which doesn’t need as many processes as the traditional one. The appearance of the final product made using the modern technique is very similar to that of a Kintsugi piece made using the traditional technique.

At the end of this class you can create your own accessories with broken ceramics, shells or glass from the beach, or even your treasures joined together!

After completing the beginner’s course, you can step up to the advanced course.

Please note if the private class is more than 6 people, it will be spread across 2 rooms.

Please let us know if have allergies for something.

We do not recommend this workshop if you’re pregnant due to use epoxy glue.

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.

Exceptional class. One on one tuition in a lovely studio. Hitomi and her husband are wonderful hosts and talented artists keen to share the history behind the kitsungi technique and their story about bringing it to Australia.
Finish your class with a cup of Japanese tea. A lot of fun and I love my finished piece. Highly recommend!

Skye Fordham • Jul 2020


I would highly recommend this course. The teacher was fantastic- friendly, easy to follow and encouraging. All materials and equipment are provided and of high quality as well as the implementation of Covid safety precautions.

I was taught by Jun's wife and I wish I wrote down her name as she was amazing. I was very relaxed during the course, having clear instructions and resources given to me, while relaxing tunes played. Time was taken to provide a brief history of the Kintsugi practice, well as an explanation of the philosophy.

The team and environment are warm and welcoming. No hard sell either. You can tell that they have a passion for Kintsugi and love passing it on to others.

Marina Rofe • Jan 2020


We attended the Kintsugi workshop for beginners with Kitomi. There were 6 of us and it was a great session. Kitomi was hands on and patient and helped us make some really beautiful accessories. The session was just the right length, there was time to pick our pieces, learn slowly and have some fun conversations and laughter. This is a fantastic session for any group who is keen for some fun craft in a relaxing environment. Thank you

John Luckman • Dec 2019


I booked an afternoon workshop for me and my partner.

The Kintsugi workshop was a fantastic creative experience, it was easy to get into and surprisingly fun. Our teacher, Hitomi was patient and encouraging with us, teaching us how to continue the practice if we wanted to and providing us tips and tools on where to get the same materials. She also explored the history of Kintsugi and was overall really hospitable despite us staying overtime. We were really happy with the venue and the end product was something we were pretty proud and surprised we were able to make.

Highly recommended.

Very interesting and something I knew nothing about previously. Good to do something creative at the weekend

Dalia Kaldas • Nov 2019


I went to the workshop with my daughter. Hitomi was delightful. She had the most amazing range of ceramics and glass- so very beautiful and after we had chosen our pieces Hitomi went through step by step explaining what we need to do. We enjoyed chatting about Japan, Kintsugi and where to find supplies. We loved it and went home with some beautiful jewelry.

Daniel Portelli • Sep 2019


We had a great time. We learnt the ancient art of Kintsugi. It's so beautiful, sweet, and relaxing. Our teacher was very nice and explained everything. Its very meditative and a soulful philosophy. She offered us macha tea and biscuits. And we talked about her travels to japan,
shogun, ramen and about the masters of Kintsugi. I recommend anyone interested in ceramics and japanese culture to give this workshop a go!

Anna Urakawa • Jul 2019


I had a lovely class recently with Hitomi! She’s a very welcoming and patient teacher who explains and demonstrates each step of the kintsugi process. Tea and cookies were delicious whilst we waited for the glue to dry. At the end of the class I was provided with a detailed printout and tips on where to purchase my own materials. The venue was easy to find and the class great value for money if you’re after a new skill! Highly recommend.

Laura Moore • Jul 2019


Our teacher Hitomi was very welcoming and provided a great variety of materials. She was patient as we took a little longer than expected. We had heaps of fun and ended up with 2 beautiful pairs of earrings!

Katrina Stanmore • Jul 2019


Highly recommend if you love unique jewellery with meaning. The results are amazing. My ten year old daughter and I had a delightful few hours with Hitomi. Shes a beautiful, talented lady who made us feel very welcome. We were thrilled with our earrings & pins and loved the history behind Kintsugi. Highly recommend this workshop as something special and unique. Great value for money. We ended up making a weekend of the visit to the CBD with lunch at the QVB and staying overnight. Would definitely do any class with Hitomi again.

Tomomi Suzue • Jul 2019


It was my first time to join the class and it was the best class I ever had. The teacher was really friendly and she explained all the details step by step. She also taught me about the beautiful meaning of Kintsugi and the culture. I chosen to make a pair of pierced earrings with beach glass. I could choose from variety of materials and I was so happy that I could make the only one earring in the world. I’ll definitely join the class again to make a pendant top and would love to step up to the advanced class.

Heidi Gibbs • Jun 2019
