Kintsugi with Kutani & Imari Ware

June 28 - July 22

We are offering a one-hour private lesson on zoom with the artist, Tomomi Kamoshita, and facilitator, Maki Aizawa. In our spring session, we will be using a collection of antique plates hand-picked by Tomomi in Japan.

The collection of dishes include “Kutani” and “Imari” ware from the Edo Period to the Meiji Period. As is the nature of antique pieces, each plate is unique and different.

Tomomi will teach a modern version of kintsugi that utilizes resin based urushi and brass powder instead of natural resin and gold powder, which can sometimes cause allergic reactions.

We have offered several Kintsugi Workshops with Tomomi. In March, April and December, 2019 in Sonoma, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Boulder, Colorado. We are thrilled to continue the lessons via zoom and share the art of Kintsugi.

The cost of an individual online class is $250.

This will include a Kintsugi kit and the antique dish.

Tomomi will teach a modern version of kintsugi that utilizes resin based urushi and brass powder instead of natural resin and gold powder, which can sometimes cause allergic reactions.

Notes :

  • “Modern Kintsugi” with Tomomi Kamoshita is a modern version of kintsugi that utilizes resin based urushi and brass powder instead of natural resin and gold powder, which can sometimes cause an allergic reaction.
  •  The broken pieces are connected by mixing resin based urushi, brass powder and thinner; each added in order little by little. Please note that the repaired piece will take at least 24 hours to be used. High temperature food or drinks are not recommended with the repaired piece for a long time.
