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.

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.

Hitomi was a kind and patient teacher and I loved hanging out and creating beautiful accessories in her relaxing studio. There was a variety of beautiful ceramic, glass and acrylic pieces to choose from, which meant that the accessories I made were truly unique. I loved this class.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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.
