Kintsugi Workshop in Melbourne

Sadly our workshops have been postponed again and again since April, and also canceled for September one.

We’re still not sure if we can hold them in October.

We’ve decided to make an announcement after the VIC/NSW border is opened.
We also will wait to hold workshops at least 1 month after the border is opened.
Let’s stay safe, take care of ourselves to overcome coronavirus.

Review from Students

Christene  from Melburne  (attended April 2019)

attended the traditional kintsugi intensive workshop in April 2019.  The workshop is hands-on so expect to learn by doing.  Jun is an excellent teacher who presents a course that is informative, thorough and well planned. We were given information, written materials and a kit to continue to work on our projects after the classes are over.   I would highly recommend the course if you are visiting Sydney or can’t commit to a regular weekly session.  We also enrolled to learn the modern method over the weekend and would also recommend that if you have the time to do this also, it is very worthwhile to learn both techniques.  Thank you Jun!

Janice  from Melburne  (attended April 2019)

Dear Jun,
I greatly enjoyed attending your 2 day weekend traditional Kintsugi and modern Kintsugi courses. You covered all the steps for both methods clearly and thoroughly, and your presentation was excellent.After completing your courses I feel confident to practice these techniques at home, and I appreciate that you have provided sufficient materials and written instructions for me to do this.Thank you Jun, it was fun.Please also thank your wife for her kind hospitality.

  Jane & Anaabbel from Melburne (attended July 2019)  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.

Teacher

Jun Morooka
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.

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.

☆ Jun is a lecturer at the Sydney Community College Kintsugi workshop!
