Yobitsugi (Kintsugi) Online Workshop

May 28, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - June 4, 2022 @ 7:00 pm

“Yobi” means to call and “tsugi” means to connect. Rather than only using pieces from the original ceramic object, Yobitsugi incorporates “foreign” pieces from other objects to mend the broken ceramic item.

In our May and June online Kintsugi session, we will practice “Yobitsugi” by bringing different elements together and creating something new from broken ceramics. There are 8 Yobitsugi sets available.


The one-hour private lesson on zoom is with the artist, Tomomi Kamoshita, based in Tokyo, and facilitator, Maki Aizawa in Sonoma, California. We will work on “Yobitsugi” with a set selected and prepared by Tomomi in Japan.

The collection of dishes and cups are from the Edo Period to the Showa Period. As is the nature of antique pieces, each plate is unique and different. We have 8 “Yobitsugi” sets available and we will only have one participant in a lesson with Tomomi and Maki.


An individual online class costs $150 and the material for a Modern Kintsugi kit and the “Yobitsugi” set is $125. The shipping and handling are $20. Please note that there will be additional shipping and handling fee for the participants outside of the US.

To register a class, please email us at [email protected].

Please visit our Kintsugi Project.

Notes :

“Modern Kintsugi” with Tomomi Kamoshita is a modern version of kintsugi that utilizes resin-based urushi and brass powder instead of natural resin and gold powder, which can sometimes cause an allergic reaction.

Please note that the repaired piece will take at least 24 hours to be used. High temperature food or drinks are not recommended with the repaired piece for a long time.
