Basics of Kintsugi


While it usually takes more than a month to finish a kintsugi piece, Showzi has developed this lesson so we can experience the craftsmanship in the space of an afternoon. On day 1, we'll meet at Showzi`s studio and you'll experience hand in hand the basics of repairing ceramics using Japanese lacquer, Urushi, with traditional techniques and methods. He'll also share with you the rich history and philosophy of Kintsugi.


 Coffee or tea 󲀃


Ceramic cup & Tools 󳀁


All necessary tools are provided. Includes ceramic cup which you`ll take home at the end powdered with 100 USD worth of gold.


Japanese lacquer can cause allergic reactions if touched directly. We'll be wearing rubber gloves, but please let us know if you'd like to be provided with an alternative adhesive substance.


We will meet at Showzi's studio, Kintsugi Souke, where he works and teaches the art of Kintsugi. It's a very easy access from Shinjuku and Ikebukuro.

On day 2, we will continue working with our piece and apply "maki-e", using Japanese lacquer and 24-karat gold powder. This will be an exciting but delicate process so Showzi will guide you step by step


Finishing Touches & Tea


We'll work on the final touches and while our pieces bake again for the last time, Showzi will perform a Japanese tea ceremony where you`ll get to experience drinking Matcha from beautiful tea bowls that Showzi has done kintsugi himself. We will also cook and enjoy eating Japanese noodles and drink Japanese sake together using finished Kintsugi pieces. It'll be a great opportunity to ask and learn more in depth about the art of Kintsugi. By the end of the day, we'll each take home a finished piece of beautiful kintsugi pottery.
