価格表 / Price list 

 京都 Kyoto Workshop:

A) your own unique piece of wearable art - a kintsugi inspired pendant.

江戸  Edo Workshop:

Full day (approx 6 hour) one-to-one workshop.

This comprehensive workshop is suitable for both beginners and those with some prior knowledge of kintsugi.

Over the course of the day you will repair a piece of ceramic tableware (bowl or plate)using modern kintsugi techniques. In addition to your plate or bowl, you will also have the opportunity to create a one-of-a-kind piece of wearable art in the form of a stunning pendant.



奈良 Nara Workshop:  

An advanced, staggered workshop for those with experience in modern kintsugi techniques who want to master the traditional Japanese method. The original 400 year old technique (passed down through families for centuries) employs  tree sap lacquer (urushi) imported from Japan and genuine 24 carat gold.  Due to the time needed to complete a repair using this ancient method, this one-to-one workshop will take place over several months in three separate sessions - approx 2 hours each. 

While the high cost of imported urushi and 24k gold powder makes this an expensive option, it is an extremely rewarding experience for anyone interested in exploring traditional kintsugi and its long history.*


 *Available only during the summer months (due to the drying requirements of natural urushi lacquer).
