We will start a small group Traditional Kintsugi English class !
Why not enjoy Japanese handcraft " kintsugi "in Shirokane Tokyo?
Kintsugi the pottery you want to repair at your own pace. We will provide detailed and easy-to-understand instructions for beginners. As a rough plan you can repair 2 to 3 items in 4 to 6 times lessons (Depending on size and difficulty level) We wanted to create a salon-like place where people interested in kintsugi could gather, so we decided to hold the classes at our home, which is located in vintage apartment building. Urushi lacquer is used in the traditional method of kintsugi. (*Please note it is different from Modern Easy Kintsugi which is finished in one day)
Private lessons, small group lessons with your friends in English now available. (Those who can speak a little Japanese can also participate in our Japanese classes, details are in Japanese page.)
For reservations and inquiries, please feel free to contact us.

Started!! Pre-order sales for the knok-down box for lacquer "URUSHI MURO BOX KD" （The Registration has ended )
Although it is made of paulownia wood, unpainted, and has a dokko style door, it is assembled with stainless screws, so it can be breaking down and stored when not in use and also can be carried. We started thinking about making products because I didn't have what I wanted, and only simple items and custom-made items were sold. We thought that many people are looking for it. Why don't you take this opportunity to upgrade from the temporary cardboard and wooden boxes?
Developing with furniture designers for those who are making kintsugi, lacquerware, and maki-e work, run workshops and classes with a small number of people, and hold workshops in multiple locations or overseas. After comparing the humidity control of the finished product and the assembly type for about a year, we decided to use the assembly type after obtaining almost the same feeling of use. It can be assembled with only a hexagonal wrench and is made in a reliable factory in Japan. If it fits under your desk, I would like to recommend it to those who are looking for something that does not feel out of place as a corner of the workspace or as an interior decoration in the living room.
Due to the small volume of production, we will only sell by reservation for the time being. *All photos are samples with a height of 700mm, so please refer to the finished drawings for a height of 600mm.
