Come and the learn the delicate art of Kintsugi as POP Canberra welcomes Kintsugi Australia to Canberra!

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

In this beginners class, you will learn some of the techniques of Kintsugi and basic knowledge required for making accessories. You will make three pieces: a pair of earrings, a brooch and a pendant. You can choose materials from ceramics, acrylic parts, beach glass and metal parts.

The Kintsugi technique you’ll learn is similar to what was done 500 years ago, but we will use modern materials (epoxy glue instead of lacquer, brass powder instead of pure gold) which don’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! Plus, you'll take home three unique accessories to cherish and wear.

Please note:

  • The class end time may vary depending on the pace of the group.
  • Let us know if have any allergies.
  • This workshop is not recommended if you’re pregnant due to the use of epoxy glue and putty.

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).

Jun Morooka has appeared on a number of media outlets, such as ABC News and SBS Australia. An audio interview is available on SBS Japanese Radio and a video interview on SBS Australia Facebook page. He was also featured on ELLE DECOR (Spain).

Jun Morooka was invited to give a kintsugi lesson during the TV Show The Bachelor Australia aired on Channel 10 on the 17th of September 2020.
