You can learn Kintsugi with Kat

 The art-form that will not only transform your broken things, but transform your life.

The first Online workshop will be Saturday 5th June at 9:30am Pacific Time

 Discover Kintsugi, an ancient Japanese artform that can not only bring your precious broken objects back to life but can also be deeply therapeutic, changing your life and the way you see yourself and the world.

Kat McDowell is a Kintsugi Academy certified teacher who teaches a modern approach to Kintsugi using a new Urushi (lacquer) made of cashew that is much safer and faster drying than traditional Kintsugi.

Her 3 hour workshops will walk you through step by step taking your broken piece of pottery and transforming it in to a new unique piece of art that tells a story only YOU can tell.

Spaces are limited and it will be best to sign up at least 3 weeks in advance for people outside of the United States to ship you the kit in time.

For any questions please feel free to reach out to Kat using the contact form below.


*If the current workshop sells out or you want to wait for In person workshops in Los Angeles you can sign up for the waiting list below.
