Modern Kintsugi at Home

July 1 - September 30

We offer a one-hour private lesson on zoom with the artist, Tomomi Kamoshita, and the facilitator, Maki Aizawa, using the Heath Ceramics tile. The cost is $175. This includes a Kintsugi kit with a broken Heath Ceramics tile and 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 to [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.
Before our online lesson:
  1. Make a payment on PayPal ( [email protected]).
  2. Schedule a one-hour online private lesson by emailing me your availability
  3. Send me your mailing address. 
  4. When you receive the Modern Kintsugi Kit, please review all the materials and read Tomomi’s book.
  5. We will work with a broken Heath Ceramicstile during our online lesson. The tile is broken into 3-5 pieces. This simple project allows you to understand the basics of Kintsugi.

Summer Schedule

  • 8/4, 8/18 and 8/25 (Tusedays) at 4pm and 5pm (PDT)
  • 8/8 and 8/22 (Saturdays) at 4pm and 5pm (PDT)

If you are in a country where these times absolutely don’t work, please let me know. Tomomi is in Tokyo and I am in California. We will find a time that works for all of us!

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.
