Kintsugi Academy


Kintsugi is the Japanese art of repairing broken objects with Japanese lacquer (urushi) and gold.

The authentic kintsugi method is based on the maki-e technique. This technique requires many years of patient practice.

Kintsugi is part of the Japanese thought “wabi-sabi” which invites us to recognize the beauty of simple, imperfect and atypical things.
