Kintsugi with Kutani & Imari Ware

January 26 - February 9

We are offering a one-hour private lesson on zoom with the artist, Tomomi Kamoshita, and facilitator, Maki Aizawa. In our fall/winter 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.

Once you sign up, we will inform each participant to pick a plate from the collection.

The cost of an individual online class is $200 and the antique dish is $60.

This will include a Kintsugi kit with an instructional book by Tomomi.

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.

Please sign up by emailing [email protected].

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.

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.
