In this intensive two-day weekend course for beginners, you will be guided by Jun Morooka and learn how to repair pottery using the traditional Japanese Kintsugi method.

This technique is perfect to restore your favourite items instead of throwing them away, which contributes to a zero-waste lifestyle while keeping a beautifully restored and now unique piece.

We will use a natural material including Urushi lacquer. Urushi is very delicate and need to be controlled humidity and temperature, otherwise, it doesn’t set. We will teach you how to make natural glue and putty from Urushi as well.

Over the course of the weekend, you will have three Kintsugi lessons that run for one-and-a-half to two hours each lesson, dependent on your pace.

The classes will consist of lots of instruction and practical making time. You will leave this intensive workshop with lots of experience, information and written materials necessary to continue to work on your broken pieces at home.


The schedule for the weekend is as follows:

Day 1 (Sat, 6th April), Lesson 1: 1pm - 2:45 pm Lesson 2: 3pm - 4:30 pm
Day 2 (Sun, 7th April) Lesson 3: 1pm - 2:45 pm
