Kintsugi Australia is located in Sydney and the only organisation in Australia completely specialised in kintsugi, offering private and group lessons, repair and kintsugi artistic creations. After completing our 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.

Kintsugi Dojo is available in Sydney studio, and also available when we visit Melbourne and Brisbane .

Beginner’s, Traditional and Kintsugi accessory courses are held in Melbourne every 4-6 weeks and occasionally in Brisbane.

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. (Sorry, but we stop accepting new repairs for a while)

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.

Jun Morooka teaches Traditional Kintsugi and Modern Kintsugi in Sydney, Melbourne and Newcastle, 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.

Jun and Hitomi Morooka were on the TV show The Livingroom on Channel 10 on the 21th of May 2021.

Great teacher and lovely other participants. Clear instructions and good pacing. A very good beginners course.

Mandy Lamkin Jul 2022

This class is a sublime few hours away from a crazy world, creating beauty from the unexpected. Kintsugi is a jewel from within a culture that is fully awakened to the simple wisdom of embracing imperfection, as we usually think of it. The class is fun and expertly and safely conducted in every respect and I'm so grateful for the experience.

Marilyn Moore Jul 2022

Our teacher was great and explained everything in detail. All materials were supplied. It was a great experience. Recommend it highly. Thank you

Elizabeth Hall Jul 2022

Teacher Hitomi-san was great. She really knew the content thoroughly and explained it in simple step-by-step bites. She had a lot of experience to account for various potential errors and helped us to understand avoiding them. She had a wealth of lovely sample products and photos of more from previous classes that we could use for inspiration on choosing pieces and also for how to put them together. She was so generous with her time and thoughts and passion to help everyone. The venue suited the activity, materials were of good quality and variety, I really enjoyed creating my earrings and pendant necklace. I think my favourite part was listening to the stories of kintsugi and enjoying the philosophy mindfully whilst applying myself to the task.

Fiona Lang Jun 2022

We really enjoyed the experience and learning about the history of Kintsugi! Highly recommended class

Had a great time learning from Miyoko-san for a friend's bridal shower. Miyoko-san was knowledgeable, encouraging, and personable - we really enjoyed her teaching style and her input. Kintsugi Australia was very accommodating and responsive during the booking process and we can't take them enough.

At the end of the class, we took home three handmade pieces which you can keep for yourself or give away as gifts. Highly recommend!

M Dharshini Mar 2022

The classroom venue was easy to find and accessable by public transport.
We had a lovely day and would highly recommend this class for anyone interested in making this style of jewellery.

Hitomi is such a knowledgeable woman. She started the class explaining about the principles of Kintsugi, and then we went on making the pieces of jewellery.
She made me feel very comfortable and confident on making it, it was fun and I felt it quite therapeutic even.
Definitely recommend it for those who are interested on this art.

Thanks Hitomi!

I bought this as gift for my daughter and we attended together, It was so good I’d do It again. I received an sms in the morning to let me know what to do when we arrived, that was helpful. Our teacher Hitomi was extremely informative and explained the history of kintsugi and how she and her husband became involved with it. We were provided with written information and an ample supply of equipment neatly organised in front of us, the session was very well organised. Hitomi was just lovely, we really enjoyed spending time with her; her knowledge, passion and hospitality made it a great experience.

We had a really great time learning kintsugi with Hitomi-san. She was very friendly and patient with us. The venue was not too big but spacious enough for two students and covid measures are in place (acetate screen, mask). The materials provided are of good quality and I'm really happy with the jewelleries that we made! They look delicate but feel quite sturdy.
I recommend this class to anyone wanting to learn a unique handicraft technique or who is interested in traditional Japanese arts.

This was such a wonderful experience - the teacher was so helpful and positive during my beginner attempts at this Japanese art form.

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.

Eliza Sullivan Jul 2020

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.

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 Aug 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.

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.
