What we’ll do

Learn the art of Kintsugi—repairing ceramics using lacquer dusted with precious metals. While it usually takes more than a month to finish a Kintsugi piece, I've developed this lesson so you can participate in this craft in one afternoon.

What else you should know

At the end of the session you'll be taking home your own Kintsugi ceramic cup, decorated with 24-karat gold. This is worth about 100 usd or 10,000 JPY.

What I’ll provide

Tea and coffee
Kintsugi tools
The ceramic cup on which you'll do the Kintsugi is yours to take home at the end.
