Take a Kintsugi Class in Tokyo – Great Family Fun! Kids Best Living Japan Kintsugi class Tokyowelcome!

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 set for 24 hours before using.

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.

  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
