Kintsugi Experience in Tokyo

Turn something old into something new during this 60-minute lesson in the Japanese art of 'Kintsugi,' the practice of repairing broken pottery. Stemming from a Japanese belief that breakage and repair are part of the history of an object, rather than a reason to throw them away, your class involves repairing damaged items with lacquer mixed with gold. Don a 'samue,' the traditional craftsmens' outfit, as you refinish one traditional pottery item, leaving with a newfound appreciation for Japanese aesthetics and a unique souvenir.
