Tokyo Kintsugi Classes

Kintsugi Classes in Tokyo

Best Living Japan offers Kintsugi Classes in central Tokyo (Minami Azabu). Join one of our Kintsugi classes to learn how to make broken into reborn masterpieces. In each class, you will learn the basics of kintsugi and how to make simple repairs. You will cherish the piece you complete. If you have a special piece at home, please bring and we will review it to see if you can work on it in class time.

We provide all the materials you need – just bring your creativity!

All Kintsugi Classes are 7,500 JPY + 10% JP Consumption tax (all materials are provided, no additional costs). All classes are held at the Best Living Japan Studio located at  @ 3-17-12 Minami Azabu, Minato-ku, Tokyo.

* To limit the spread of the coronavirus, we will have max of 8 participants per class and we ask everyone to wear a mask at all times. Temperatures will be taken at the entry to the studio.

Kintsugi is 400-year-old traditional Japanese craft in which broken pottery is repaired in such a way that the repaired piece is stronger and more beautiful than it was originally.

The traditional method used rice paste as a bonding agent, but that takes about 4 weeks to dry. We will use an epoxy, real natural lacquer, and your choice of gold or silver flakes or dust. You will be able to take your piece home immediately and let it sit for 24 hours before using it.

Please feel welcome to bring your own piece of broken pottery. But if you don’t have a piece we will provide a selection from which can you pick one (no additional cost). We will also provide all materials needed to complete your project in 2-3 hours. No experience necessary, but an open mind, creativity, and some patience.

Chose your favorite bowl, cup, or plate from a broken selection and learn to mend it bringing new life. All materials included. You may bring a piece from home to repair, however, we will need to review and see if it can be completed in the class time.

You may also bring your own item to fix, but I advise if of high value to practice before mending.

  1. Hello Lauren
    In the New Year I will take one of your wonderful classes- you come highly recommended. Meanwhile I was wondering how many maximum do you take in your classes.
    I am working on leisure programs for the Olympics and your classes would be amazing – would we have to come to you or can you come to a workshop room or hotel ?
    I look forward to hearing from you
    Kindest regards
    Christine

  2. My 5 year old loves anything arts and crafts, would it be ok to bring her with me to do this activity together? We would probably work on the one piece together until she gets bored.

    Thanks

    • Hello Tracey, You can bring and we can arrange to have a 1/2 price fee for your child. Please let us know if you would live to sign-up. Lauren

  3. Greetings Lauren

    Will you be conducting any kintsugi classes after June 2nd? I don’t see a listing of summer options.

    Kind regards,
    Lauren Scott

  4. Lauren,

    • Hello, Yes, we will post all fall workshops and classes in late July. Working on now! thanks lauren

  5. Hello,
    My daughters and I will be in Tokyo in October 2021 and we are very interested in taking a Kintsugi class while we are there. Is it possible to be notified when you post your fall classes? Thank you.
