Kintsugi Class in Tokyo Ueno

金継ぎ 教室東京上野 | Kintsugi Class in Tokyo Ueno


In this class, you will learn the traditional Japanese technique of Kintsugi, where broken ceramic ware is fixed by applying lacquer and gold dust.

Because this is an introduction class, we do not use real gold dust and lacquer, but a high quality metal substitute and bonding agent instead. After the Kintsugi restoration is completed, your finished piece can be used as regular ceramic ware. The finish and durability is just as the traditional techniques.

Our Kintsugi classes are taught in a small setting and mostly one-on-one, so that we can focus on each student’s individual requirements. You can book an individual class or a group class for up to 3 students. Please contact us with your preferred date and time and let us know if you have any other requirements.

Broken Pottery

Please bring your own broken or cracked ceramic piece (for example a teacup with 1 – 3 cracks, or a plate that has been broken into 2 – 3 pieces). If you would like to repair a piece with more damage than that, you might need to book an additional class, since it will take more time to fix the piece.

If you have any questions regarding the repair of your broken ceramic piece, feel free to contact us and tell us the size (height / width / length / diameter) of your ceramic piece and the damage (how many cracks / how many broken pieces). We can give you an estimate on how to fix your ceramic piece.
