About the event

JSB members are invited to join us at Boston Children's Museum for a fun workshop about the art of kintsugi, a traditional Japanese method of repairing ceramics by highlighting the lines of breakage with precious metals.

Tatsuya Murao, kintsugi artist, will give a brief presentation explaining the background of kintsugi. Then we will be able to apply those concepts by creating our own small accessories joining recycled materials into a one-of-a-kind piece of art. We will be using ceramic paints and glue instead of real lacquer in this workshop as there will not be enough time for curing


Afterwards, join us on a tour of the traditional Japanese merchant townhouse at Boston Children's Museum, Kyo no Machiya, and the window display of real kintsugi works.

Spaces are limited. If you are not a JSB member, you can sign up to become one here.
