The class was wonderful
Our teacher, Hitsumi, was so informative and very patient at every stage of the process. Her knowledge allowed me to understand the history and the importance of kintsugi over the past 500 years, but also the spiritual importance it allows people to have. Thank you, Hitsumi! I would love to learn and do more in the future! Arigato!

My partner and I had a wonderful time. A very welcoming environment. Not only did we learn kintsugi but we got a crash course in its history and philosophy. The whole experience was enjoyable and the Japanese tea with Matcha flavoured Kit Kat provided by Noriko was delicious. Noriko was an excellent sensei and I highly recommend the class.

Absolutely loved everything about it! Learned so much not only about Kintsugi but about Japan in general. Thank you!

Liz Lobb Nov 2023

This was a fabulous lesson. The teacher Jun was so patient and meticulous. A true craftsman and Master of Kintsugi. The process was step by step and you are guided through each step to create a beautiful piece. I love the philosophy behind it as well and it reminds me of Leonard Cohen's song - "there is a crack in everything - that's how the light gets in". A truly meditative experience and I would recommend it for all.

My partner and I recently attended this short course, after finding it online. We had a lovely afternoon in a calm environment, learning about this new skill. Our teacher was Miyoko - she was friendly and kind, well informed. We loved the experience! THANK YOU to Miyoko for such a lovely, well guided experience.

Aryan Chawla Nov 2023

Jun-san was very friendly and passionate about the craft. He took his time to explain the history behind kintsugi, teach us more about the symbolism behind it and was very helpful when we were repairing the plate. Well worth the visit to learn a new skill

Pottery class review by Aryan Chawla - Sydney

Faye Hopkins Nov 2023

Jun is a very concise, and experienced teacher, teaching slowly, in steps, which is easy to follow, along with the history behind Kintsugi. I loved this.

Ann Fox Nov 2023

Hitomi was a brilliant teacher. Very attentive and explained the process and history of kintsugi very well. All materials were provided, set up and ready to go. You can buy a kit to do kintsugi repairs at home but the teacher also advised where you could buy materials and different options. She gave great suggestions on how to repair a personal item at home. I would definitely recommend this workshop.

Tim Barbarino Nov 2023

Jun-san’s Kintsugi class was amazing! His teaching style is gentle and easy to follow.

I highly recommend to anyone seeking to learn a unique art form. It’s not just about fixing ceramics. It’s also about finding beauty in the broken, and emerging stronger. ????????

Miyoko our teacher was warm, welcoming and very knowledgeable.
The venue was centrally located, currently being renovated
The materials were provided, and they were excellent
The Kintsugi class was excellent value for money and included all tools and equipment required as well as my amazing repaired plate!
Today's class was the beginners level of Kintsugi, we were given a brief background and then step by step instructions with written information and more importantly Miyoko guided and instructed each of the participants on an individual level.
I loved the whole experience, loved it

We arranged a Kintsugi class for 15 people in our workplace as a social event. It was very popular and a few months later we brought Jun & Hitomi back for a second class for another 12 people! Participants very much enjoyed the event which was very informative and fun. I personally found the class to be very rewarding. Hitomi and Jun are very organised and easy to deal with. Thank you!

I appreciate the fact that she paid attention to all of us attending and guided us where necessary.

The classroom was a bit small but granted, they are in the process of moving locations.

Would definitely recommend this.

Johana Funayama Nov 2023

I’m so happy to find this traditional Kintsugi class in Sydney. The teacher, Jun San , is very patient . He is not only teaching the skill of kitsugi but also, explains deeply about the history and the philosophy of kinstugi.

A thoroughly enjoyable afternoon, and so rare these days to spend time being thoughtful and creative. It's a therapeutic practice and was taught in an engaging and joyful manner. Thank you.

Janet Bellinger Nov 2023

The teacher was lovely and entertaining. All materials were provided. Lovely green tea and a snack in the middle. I liked his feedback and encouragement if students apologised for their errors "there are no sorries in Kintsugi". Wonderful morning and I am very proud of my new broken plate.

Loved doing the course with my hubby/best friend, and with Jun and Hitomi who were awesome teachers. They were friendly, funny, and really helpful throughout the whole class. It was a very relaxed atmosphere, we had lovely tea and Japanese snacks, and you take home your own bit of kintsugi. What more could you ask for. Lovely Saturday morning ????
