Beginner’s Kintsugi Workshop

Beginner’s (Modern) Kintsugi Workshop

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!

In this beginners class 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 it can be learnt by anyone with ease.

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!Please click here for More Reviews
