My boyfriend and I really enjoyed our class with Kuge crafts! We started with introductions and some lovely home made cake. Then we got to chose our cups that we will work on and keep. Would recommend...more
Learning Kintsugi at Kuge Crafts was an amazing experience. Yoshiko and Yoshiichiro were brilliant teachers and hosts. We will definitely be back soon!

A very interesting and useful introduction to that art, with very nice teachers! It was a good moment for us in Tokyo.
