There are so many kinds of objects in the world. Sometimes we throw it away when it’s broken, but occasionally we hesitate.

Because our favourite things carry good memories from the heart. And that was the same with the ancient people of Japan.

Kintsugi technique was born about 500 years ago to repair the broken ceramics in Japan.

金 Kin = Gold 継ぎtsugi = Put together, joint together

The basics of this technique are same to the traditional Kintsugi technique which has a history of 500 years. Traditional technique use Urushi Lacquer and precious metal such as gold and silver. Today we use modern materials such as epoxy resin and metal powder, and it can be practiced by anyone with ease.

The appearance of the final product made using the modern material very similar to that of a Kintsugi piece made using the traditional material.

Through this course, you will know Kintsugi is not only repairs technique but also a creative technique!

You will make either: One pair of pierced or clip on earrings (total 2 objects) or One brooch and one pendant top (total 2 objects)

You will find your favorite pieces from material of ceramics, acrylic plastics and beach glasses.
