PROFILE

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.

Beginner's Kintsugi Workshop (Sydney)


An enjoyable and fantastic experience! I would definitely recommend this to all my friends. Jun (the teacher) is very kind and friendly, leading you through the history, philosophy of Kintsugi with detailed and patient instructions for your hand-on experience. After 2 hours of workshop with chatting and laughing, you will have your own beautiful Kintsugi ceramics, a piece of art that you can display or use. And after the beginner workshop, now I feel like I can repair my family and my friends’ broken ceramics. I certainly enjoyed the entire experience, including the lovely tea break and Japanese cookies!

I loved my Kintsugi workshop with Jun today. It was a nice introduction to the history of Kintsugi as well repairing a broken piece of pottery. Jun also runs a three day course which I hope to attend. It’s very relaxing and Jun is a lovely teacher. I would highly recommend

Beginner's Kintsugi Workshop (Sydney)


Jun was a fantastic teacher and lovely leader for our small class. Class sizes are small, so you get personalised attention. The workshop was lovely and the little break for tea and snacks was unexpected and nice to sit back while things dried. Very relaxing and informational. I think I'll go back for the traditional class next!

Kintsugi Accessory Workshop for Beginners (Sydney)


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.

Bought this course as a gift and the recipient loved the experience... she said it was very interesting and relaxing

Traditional Kintsugi 2days Intensive Class (Syd)


Having always been fascinated by the philosophy of Kintsugi that something broken can be reassembled "to be even more beautiful” we made a trip to Sydney and enrolled in a 2day intensive course with Jun.
We had a fabulous couple of days - we were greeted with a warm welcome and our Kintsugi materials were well organised and waiting for us on our desk so we could get to work. Jun explained the techniques clearly and thoroughly and provided written instructions as well. He was alongside us whilst we worked giving us encouragement and tips along the way. We now feel equipped and confident to practice these techniques at home and are so glad we came and did the course. Both of us returned to Melbourne feeling refreshed and relaxed
Thankyou to Hitomi for her warm hospitality- we loved the Japanese tea and biscuits and laughing and chatting with you both throughout the course. If you love Kintsugi- we can not recommend this course more highly.

5

Kintsugi Accessory Workshop for Beginners (Sydney)


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.

Kintsugi Accessory Workshop for Beginners (Sydney)


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.

5

Beginner's Kintsugi Workshop (Sydney)


Jun was a very patient and encouraging teacher. Before we started he let me in on the history of kintsugi so that I understand the philosophy of fixing broken things (which has a very profound meaning). During lesson, he kept assuring me not to worry about time or making mistakes, he simply would like the students to enjoy making the kintsugi calmly. I went a little over the time to finish my piece, and I’m so happy with how it turns out. Plus him and his wife were very warm people, we had a good chat in between the activities (and snacks too!). Thank you for the class Jun!

It was very relaxing as well.

Beginner's Kintsugi Workshop (Sydney)


I enjoyed this class immensely. Jun is an excellent teacher, the class was very well organised with the best equipment, a wonderful pacing and great attention to detail. In addition, Jun is very encouraging which is wonderful for someone like me who has very little confidence in their creative skills.

5

Beginner's Kintsugi Workshop (Sydney)


The kintsugi workshop was a fantastic experience. Jun is a great teacher and explains the process very clearly, demonstrating the techniques and tips to guide you through the steps.

Beginner's Kintsugi Workshop (Sydney)


This was the perfect class to relax and unwind and not think about the stresses of every day life. I chose this class because it is a way to focus on something peaceful and beautiful instead of my work and life pressures

Jun and Hitomi are very kind and knowledgeable. Jun was there to instruct help and guide through out the process in a calm and friendly manner .

Tea an a snack is also offered half way though which was a really nice touch and a good sign of hosting.

I could not recommend this course more


これはリラックスしてくつろぎ、日常生活のストレスについて考えることなく完璧なクラスでした。私がこのクラスを選んだのは、仕事や人生のプレッシャーの代わりに、平和で美しい何かに集中する方法だからです。

ジュンとひとみはとても親切で知識が豊富です。ジュンは、穏やかで友好的な方法で助けを指示し、プロセスをガイドするためにそこにいました。

お茶とおやつも中途半端に提供されていますが、それは本当にいい感じで、ホスティングの良い兆候でした。

このコースはこれ以上勧められませんでした

Pottery workshop review by Wenny Ly

Beginner's Kintsugi Workshop (Sydney)


My teacher Hitomi was amazing! She was very patient and informative. I found this course to be great value for money with everything I needed supplied.

What struck me the most about Jun and Hitomi was their love for Kintsugi is so strong that they want to share their knowledge and show you how to make this an art form for yourself. The skills they teach you were designed so that you can take this art form and carry it on by yourself if you so choose to and if you don’t, you can continue with other courses and develop your skills.

I thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone!

5

Beginner's Kintsugi Workshop (Sydney)

5

Beginner's Kintsugi Workshop (Sydney)


Jun and his wife made me feel very welcome and Jun's story of his journey into Kintsugi is really interesting, he is lucky to be able to do something he loves. I enjoyed his instructions as well as watching him work, it was a real pleasure. I have a nice display plate from my 2 hour workshop, and knowledge of the history of Kintsugi. Excellent afternoon well spent.

5

Beginner's Kintsugi Workshop (Sydney)


I was welcomed by Jun and his wife a very pleasant couple. Jun provided a concise short history of Kintsugi and provided information about where to learn more in-depth knowledge about the development of the philosophy behind Kintsugi. The workspace is clean ( a little small by Australian standards however I would say it’s very much what I imagine a working space to be like in Japan. All materials were supplied. Jun was very encouraging in his teaching even though I thought I was botching it up. At the end of the day I left feeling enriched for the experience. I have no hesitation in recommending this class.

Beginner's Kintsugi Workshop (Sydney)


Jun was well prepared and ready to introduce us to the art of Kitsungi. We had a delightful and productive workshop learning about the history, modern adaptations, Jun’s practice and of course making our own Kitsungi masterpiece. The venue in Sydney’s CBD is central and comfortable. Jun has designed the session well where we progressed at a steady pace and even have a chance to take a morning tea of matcha tea and cookies. He is helpful when you’re stuck and is generous with his knowledge. Thank you Jun!

5

Beginner's Kintsugi Workshop (Sydney)


A well-structured and informative class! Jun-san shared cultural as well as personal history about kintsugi, and was a very patient and encouraging teacher. He taught us a self-developed affordable and efficient technique using modern, easily sourced materials, and served us tea and snacks midway. Thank you!

Lovely, highly enjoyable way to spend an evening. Jun was very knowledgeable and well-organised. We were able to complete the whole repair process, including an introduction to the Kintsugi philosophy, in the workshop, and walked away with our own beautifully refurbished piece of ceramic and lots of tips on sourcing equipment and materials to continue the Kintsugi journey at home. A wonderful experience.

5

Beginner's Kintsugi Workshop (Sydney)


Some feedback received from the class attendees:

“I thought that the Kintsugi Class was really well run and informative. I enjoyed the practical element of this along with the history.”
“Outstanding”

From my dealings with Jun prior to and on the day, he impressed as very professional and organised. He and fellow teacher, Hitomi Morooka, even made a visit to the location in Macquarie Park a week in advance of the class to check the travel time, see what the space was like and to let me know the few requirements he needed to set up the class.

I would recommend the Kintsugi class as a great corporate small team event to break up a day of meetings and learn something completely new. The philosophy behind the craft is also interesting and applicable to team building.

Thanks also goes to ClassBento for arranging the class to be held at our office, which worked so well for our team workshop!

Master Jun is very kind and knowledgeable about the art of kintsugi! His wife, Hitomi is very hospitable and friendly (: I had a great time learning the art and also got to chit chat with both Jun and Hitomi. A great afternoon spent at their studio!

I went to the workshop with my daughter. Hitomi was delightful. She had the most amazing range of ceramics and glass- so very beautiful and after we had chosen our pieces Hitomi went through step by step explaining what we need to do. We enjoyed chatting about Japan, Kintsugi and where to find supplies. We loved it and went home with some beautiful jewelry.

Great class.
I have been wanting to learn how to do kintsugi for a long time. I'm glad I finally found this class and took the step.
It's always exciting to learn a new skill.
I can now confidently fix some beautiful pieces of broken pottery I have. And a new skill to add to my toolbox.
Looking forward to learning traditional kintsugi.
Hope to be able to bring Kintsugi Australia to Canberra for a class.
Wonderful teacher with very clear instructions.

Learning traditional Kintsugi method is very enjoyable. It is quite a complex process but Jun sensei explains and demonstrates very clearly and provides comprehensive notes and guidance, so I feel confident that I can go home and continue to practice by myself, until I hav another opportunity to learn more. I am very impressed that Jun sensei was able to teach so much in just one weekend. Arigatou gozaimashita ????????

This was one of our very first workshops we have been to and Jun was so helpful and accommodating. The workshop was very insightful where Jun taught us the history behind Kinsugi and also shared his journey into this amazing art.
Each step of the class was very thorough and detailed. Jun also gave us the opportunity to take photos of every step so we have something to visually look back at.

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.

We took the beginner's Kinstugi class with not much idea what to expect and were thrilled with the experience.
Jun was a fantastic teacher, who showed great patience, humour and friendliness.
We learned a lot from him and would definitely love to go back someday.

I was really looking forward to the class and I was not disappointed. Jun explains the history and method of Kintsugi with care and patience. He explains the steps, the techniques, the materials and where to purchase them. I feel confident that I could repair a ceramic piece now. In time, I would like to learn the Traditional Kintsugi method. Thank you Jun.

We attended the Kintsugi workshop for beginners with Kitomi. There were 6 of us and it was a great session. Kitomi was hands on and patient and helped us make some really beautiful accessories. The session was just the right length, there was time to pick our pieces, learn slowly and have some fun conversations and laughter. This is a fantastic session for any group who is keen for some fun craft in a relaxing environment. Thank you!!

Teacher Jun is incredible! He taught us the deeper meaning of Kintsugi and how this beautiful art can be related to your own lives. Jun took us through the history of Kintsugi, then showed us a step by step of the entire process.

The teaching style was very good as he demonstrated & then assisted when needed. We had class of 4 so room size was good. All materials provided. Also short break with green tea & a snack. Time seemed to fly by so was a surprise when class ended. Very pleasant time. Would be a good gift for a friend. Kintsugi basics are easy to learn.

5

Beginner's Kintsugi Workshop (Sydney)


Teacher was very nice and patient (which is important for beginners doing such a delicate craft). Really appreciated the personal touch of sharing his journey learning about Kintsugi and it was very obvious Jun was passionate about teaching others about the process, sharing where to buy the equipment. Also love the Japanese tea and kitkats!

We had a beginner Kintsugi Workshop with Hitomi today and it was fantastic! She was very kind and knowledgeable, and guided us every step of the way so we’d be able to do Kintsugi at home. I’d love to do this class again. We were given Sencha tea, and Hitomi took photos that she sent to me afterwards. We were also given the gold/brass powder to take home afterwards. Am gifting this workshop to everyone I can!!!

Traditional Kintsugi 2days Intensive Class (Syd)


Jun is an excellent teacher.
Traditional kintsugi is very different to modern kintsugi and a great skill to have, especially if you are a potter. I will also use this in my woodwork.
I am really happy to have been able to find and participate in this class and other classes at Kintsugi Australia.
I highly recommend Kintsugi Australia.

Traditional Kintsugi 2days Intensive Class (Syd)


I really enjoyed attending the course. the teacher was very precise in teaching the technique, which is very complicated.
I can say that I am satisfied.
if I have to give advice, I think it would be better to have a bigger table to work better and maybe more days within a month, to learn the real development of this technique

Such a good workshop! Everything from the philosophy behind kintsugi to the actual technique was very interesting. Our teacher, Jun, was a patient teacher and it was nice to hear him talk about how he got into kintsugi and different things about his life and Japan in general. The workshop was comprehensive enough that we could repair our own pieces at home in future.

I enjoyed this class. Teachers presented the information clearly, showed by examples and helped when it was needed. Gave everyone positive support and I appreciated how everything was neatly laid out for our use, and the mid-project cup of tea and snack was welcome. I learned about the history as well as practical aspects of Kintsugi. Am considering taking the more detailed course. Small group meant we were all busy, but the room was positive and cheerful.

This class was excellent! In two hours I walked away with a sense of what Kintsugi was about, a great understanding of the modern basics of the craft, plus some extra supplies to ensure that I can try again at home.

Jun and Hitomi are excellent teachers and they provided support throughout the class to ensure everyone walked out with a beautiful piece.

Plus there is Japanese tea and snacks! And how can you beat that!?!

Venue was a bit too hot. It was a very warm weekend but an electric fan would have made the experience more comfortable.

The class content was very good and the tea break a very nice idea.

5

Beginner's Kintsugi Workshop (Melbourne)


One of the best workshops I've ever done! It was so well organised. Techniques were clearly explained and it all unfolded very logically. The materials were great, so were the explanatory notes. It was very satisfying to finish the project by end of the class and I know that I can complete another project in my own time. But the best thing was getting an insight into the philosophy behind the craft. Perhaps it is - the traces living leaves on you are to be celebrated and cared for. Not discarded or disguised. Hooray! Thank you Jun and Hitomi!

5

Beginner's Kintsugi Workshop (Sydney)


I received a voucher for this kintsugi class as a gift, and I wasn't really expecting much. What I experienced far exceeded my expectations! The kintsugi process was fascinating and surprisingly satisfying. Hitomi was a great teacher - very patient. I would recommend this class to anyone.

5

Beginner's Kintsugi Workshop (Sydney)


I have absolutely no craft skills but was intrigued by the technique. The instructor was charming and incredibly patient with me ... I was all thumb and awkward. That said, I left with a plate I love and am looking forward to showing friends. My sister who is quite crafty refuses to believe I did it ! Highly recommend.

Wonderful unique experience learning from a very capable, giving, professional and charming teacher who has studied with five Kintsugi Masters in Japan over the years. All the equipment was provided and all one had to do was just arrive and enjoy the very special tutorial. The location and teaching area worked extremely well too along with the unexpected kind hospitality of Japanese tea and treats midway through this lovely journey. Many thanks and I would be happy to recommend this course to anyone.

I would highly recommend taking time out of your busy life to spend a calm, creative and productive couple of hours with Jun and Hitomi. Jun did a great job explaining the technique and philosophy of Kintsugi. He was kind and patient and helpful. It was a lot more involved than we expected and we felt a huge sense of accomplishment at the end of the class. The tea break with Japanese snacks half way through was a pleasant surprise - thank you Hitomi.
