In this beginner's Kintsugi workshop in Brisbane, you will learn some of the basic techniques of Kintsugi, similar to those used throughout its 500-year history. In this class, modern materials are used so Kintsugi can be learnt by anyone with ease.

You will learn about the wonderful art of Kintsugi, the ancient Japanese art of mending broken pottery using lacquer with gold, platinum or silver, which dates back to 15th century Japan. The philosophy of Kintsugi is that an object is sometimes broken, however, this is part of its life and rather than throw it away it can be repaired and the cracks remain to show its history. This is a beautiful art to learn while also helping with sustainability as you are not throwing things away!

At the end of the class, you will be able to take home your repaired creation which will be very similar to the Kintsugi piece using the traditional technique.

This beginners Kintsugi class is an original technique designed by Kintsugi Australia to make it easy for anyone to use the Modern Kintsugi technique, especially for those who live in Australia. We will also explain where you can get the materials so, after the class, you will be able to repair your own object at your home. You can buy most materials in local stores in Australia.

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.
