Traditional Kintsugi Basic Course

Learn Traditional Kintsugi in 3 lessons



3 x 2 hours 1 to 6 label $385


“Kintsugi” is a traditional Japanese technique used to repair broken ceramics, which has been practised for over 500 years.

In this course, you are able to learn Kintsugi, which is mostly the same technique which was used 500 years ago.

This course also ables you to feel the “beauty of imperfection” and the philosophy behind Kintsugi, which would be a perfect break from the busy lifestyle most people have today.

We are the only class that provides a course where students are able to master the traditional art of Kintsugi in only 3 lessons.

There are several lessons held everyday, so students can choose a date and time that suits them.

Below are the schedules:
Weekdays: 10:30am, 1:30pm, 6:00pm (suitable for people who have a day-job)

Weekends: 1:30pm
Each lesson is approximately 1.5-2 hours, depending on the students.

After completing this course, you will be able to participate in the Kintsugi Dojo.

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.

Great class. Very warm and friendly atmosphere. Jun is clearly a kinsugi master and very generous with his knowledge. You are provided exactly everything you need and you have your own lamp and bin ect. They have thought of everything and it helped to make a great experience. Looking forward to next class!
