What is Kintsugi?

Kintsugi is Japan's ancient art of celebrating broken pottery. It is rooted in an eastern philosophy of finding beauty in imperfections. Many believe it can help us to accept our flaws and foster a sense of peace and fulfillment. 

Taught by qualified Kintsugi artist Nilo, who learnt Kintsugi art in Kyoto, Japan, you will undergo a transformative experience in healing as you mend your Kintsugi ceramic piece.

Broken made Beautiful

Kintsugi is built on the idea that in embracing the broken pottery pieces’ flaws and imperfections, you can create an even stronger, more beautiful piece of art.

Using this art as a metaphor for healing ourselves teaches us an important lesson – that sometimes in the process of repairing ourselves through our flaws and imperfections, we create an even more beautiful stronger, resilient us. We may be BROKEN but no less BEAUTIFUL!

In an age of mass production and quick disposal, learning to accept and celebrate scars and flaws and to not throw away things that break is also a powerful lesson in sustainability.

Kintsugi Art Studio was born out of a passion to teach this sustainable and healing art to everyone.

Join us in this journey of self discovery and healing.

For every workshop you attend at Kintsugi Art Studio, we will plant a tree, in partnership with One Tree Planted a US based non profit environmental group. We are pleased to announce that we have planted more than 2,000 trees to date!

What Our Students Say

Testimonials from our students
My friends brought me here for a surprise birthday activity and we could not have had a better experience . Nilo was so knowledgeable and kind, and encouraged us to reflect on how kintsugi related to parts of our lives that might be “broken” or difficult. We had a meaningful time learning this beautiful craft in such a peaceful and comfortable studio. Thank you Nilo!
