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

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

During the workshop, 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 similar to the one used 500 years ago, but we use modern materials (epoxy glue instead of lacquer, brass powder instead of pure gold) which don’t require 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 will take your creations home and can continue to 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.

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.
