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 only in Sydney main studio, but online Dojo is starting in February 2022.

Beginner’s, Traditional and Kintsugi accessory courses are held in Melbourne nearly every month 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.

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).

A wonderful workshop to learn about the history of Kintsugi and the concept of how we can repair and heal what is broken in us. Our teacher was insightful, patient and generous. I highly recommend this class.

Traditional Kintsugi Two-day Course



Jun our teacher was very calm and informative. We were supplied our equipment and were not short of anything. He and his wife Hitomi even offered Kintsugi kits that we could purchase to keep practicing at home. The venue was great with lots of street parking. It was a lovely Japanese cultural experience.

Kintsugi Workshop for Beginners



My son and I absolutely loved this class! Jun Sensei was very knowledgeable in the area of kitsugi, and able to break the steps down into simple, easy to follow instructions. All resources and tools were supplied. The venue was great and class size small, so we were all able to engage multiple times with Jun Sensei. Excellent value for money! We can’t wait to do the advanced class now.

Kumi sensei is so lovely! She is very patient and helpful in guiding me throughout the course. The course is very fun and interactive too! Kintsugi is such a beautiful art preserved by Japanese culture until today. I feel so grateful and honoured to learn this art technique from my Japanese sensei, Kumi. I look forward for more upcoming Kintsugi workshop (hopefully face by face) in the near future! I have been recommending this workshop to my friends and work colleagues too!

Kintsugi Workshop for Beginners



Teachers were lovely and explained the kinsugi process well. The timing was good to complete the plate in the 2 hr class and I think I have enough knowledge to try my own plate at home now.


Lilloan Tyson Aug 2022

Beginner's Kintsugi Workshop



Noriko-san is a wonderful teacher. She is kind, thoughtful and very well prepared. Doing a class on a Friday morning meant that I had her full attention. She showed me how to repair a plate using modern Kintsugi methods and told me the story of how the art came about. I was very pleased to have a completed plate to take home

Beginner's Kintsugi at Home



I loved this workshop; the process was so mindful and gentle; it was conducted at s nice pace, and the teacher was very knowledgeable and encouraging at all stages of the course. The kit came in plenty of time, and I had leftover materials to try another kintsugi soon. I would recommend this workshop not only for the process but also for the reminder that when you see something is broken, don't throw it away as often it can be repaired and even more beautiful.

Brigitte Jul 2022

Beginner's Kintsugi Workshop



I'm so glad I did it! The teacher and founder, Jun, was fantastic, kind, generous with his explanations, his time, his patience. He gave a very interesting historical background of what kinsugi is before we started the class. Then each step was clearly explained and demonstrated before the hands-on part so it was easy to do it. I am delighted with this workshop and I absolutely love my kintsugi plate! The workshop was in the middle of the week in the middle of the day, so I happened to be on my own and they still went on with it, most people would  + more

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.

Great teacher and great vibe. Just wanted to take the wife out for a nice date before her maternity leave ended , and they delivered exactly as described. We learnt about the history of kintsugi, repaired a plate (that we got to take home), was provided lovely snacks, had opportunity to view a variety of kintusgi by other students and the teacher, and had a very enjoyable experience overall.


Katrina Hoffmann Jul 2022

It was a very enjoyable class. Our teacher, Hitomi, was friendly and very informative and helpful with the project.It was a really fun activity. Hitomi briefly took us through the history and philosophy behind kintsugi as well as helping us with the practical skills. It left me wanting to do more and learn more about the traditional technique.

Mitchell Chow Jul 2022

We had a terrific time, the teacher was very kind, and was able to communicate the lesson in Japanese as we had someone who could only speak Japanese. The small class made the lesson more engaging and enjoyable, and the small break in the middle allowed for us to talk with the others.


Mel Li Jul 2022

Beginner's Kintsugi Workshop



This class was awesome. Noriko-san was wonderful. She was so knowledgeable & lovely to spend time with. She taught us not only about the method of how to do kintsugi but also shared the history & culture of this art form which gave it depth. It was fun, relaxing & a great thing to do with friends


Catleya Wilson Jul 2022

Noriko-san was a perfect sensei. She was patient, fun and clear with instruction, and mixed it up with the history and philosophy of Kintsugi. We had 5 in the class so everyone got to know each other and we had enough attention from Noriko. Would definitely recommend!

Nikki Ma Jul 2022

She was very warm, kind-hearted and patient, she guided us thoroughly through each steps and kindly answered every questions that we had regarding Kintsugi and its origin.

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,  + more

Jun-sensei is a great teacher. I’ve already had an interest in Japanese culture and crafts for a long time and found this class very interesting and a lot of fun. As it is a beginner’s level, anyone would be able to successfully complete it and I highly recommend it! Even if you don’t know what kintsugi is exactly, you will be provided with the background knowledge. If you enjoy working with your hands, I would definitely give this a go!

--What was the teacher like? The teacher (Noriko) was super friendly, knowledgeable and kind. She was so calm, and an amazing instructor. The entire time was engaging and we were so grateful for the experience! Nothing but praise for her. --How was the venue (if applicable)? Fine! It was just a small studio / room, and suited the purpose. --If materials were provided, did you like them? Yes! The teacher went through and explained all of the materials, and made suggestions for where we could also acquire our own. --Was the experience good value  + more

Noriko-sensei made sure we all walked away with beautiful plates and the knowledge of kintsugi's history. Really enjoyed the experience and now I know not only the history of kintsugi, but where to buy materials so I can do my own modern kintsugi at home. The Japanese snacks and tea were also very good. 10/10 would recommend :)

Traditional Kintsugi Two-day Course



I did the modern kintsugi course earlier and did this traditional course to compare. They are quite different methods but Jun is extremely proficient at passing on his knowledge. Modern is for those wanting instant gratification while traditional takes patience and is most satisfying, almost therapeutic. As traditional method usually takes many weeks to complete a small piece we only had 6 hours in which to do the same. Therefore Jun teaches the steps and methods and we will use that knowledge to complete our own works. All in all it was value for  + more

Miyoko was very friendly, patient and detailed throughout the process and in the end even somebody with clumsy fingers like me could make something beautiful! Highly recommend this class if you are into Kintsugi or Japanese art/culture.

Beginner's Kintsugi Workshop



Easy to find, very close to Town Hall station. The room is lovely. Myoko was an excellent teacher, and such a lovely person. I enjoyed the class so much and came away with a perfect kintsugi'd plate at the end of it! We also enjoyed Japanese tea and treats which was a lovely touch. Such an enjoyable time, I can't recommend highly enough.

I had a lovely couple of hours - Kumi guided me through the process and I thoroughly enjoyed how my pieces all came together. It has left me wanting to learn more. My box of what was needed arrived very quickly and the pre-course instructions we clear - I felt confident in my choice and now have a lovely plate! Thank you for a satisfying way to spend a couple of hours on a Sunday.

My partner and I had wanted to do a Kintsugi class for a few years now- this class, teacher and kit was everything we could possibly have hoped for (and more!) Perfectly pitched for total beginners but not over-simplified. We learned about the history, materials and tools as well as learning and practicing our skills at each step in the process.

A brilliant workshop! I was initially hesitant to book a two days workshop but really enjoyed the in-depth class and I soon realised why it was necessary to have it over two seperate days. I thought the mix of learning, hands on activity and the review at the end of each stage of the process really helped me to understand the process in more depth. It was obvious that different learning styles had been considered and I really appreciated that aspect. I'm excited to have a new mindful hobby that I can continue to develop over the coming years  + more

I had a great time during the class, I was the only person present - but I enjoyed that thoroughly as it felt like a more informative and less distracting experience. I loved learning about the history of kintsugi while making the m odernised version of it, as it felt very 'whole'! The room was perfect for focusing and relaxing, as there was no sound interference despite being in the middle of the city. It would be nice to do bowls too - but I understand now that it would take too long! Thank you, especially for the tape and book I was given  + more

The teachers for this Kintsugi class were wonderful. They provided clear instructions and left me confident that I can do this again by myself. All materials were provided.

Loved this small intimate class. I certainly feel more confident in fixing my valuables now

Beginner's Kintsugi Workshop



Jun San is an amazing teacher! He was so knowledgeable and helpful, incredibly friendly and kind. I would definitely recommend this experience to anyone wanting to step out of their busy life and step into a Japanese hideaway, doing something mindful and meaningful. 10/10 would do this a million times more!
