  • We use real Japanese lacquer (urushi) and pure gold in order to teach the authentic kintsugi method.

  • If the lacquer gets on your clothes, it cannot be removed. It does not come out even if you wash it.


“Why can Urushi cause a rash?”

Urushi (Japanese lacquer) comes from a plant that is related to poison ivy. Urushi, in its liquid from, can cause an allergic rash and dermatitis if it comes in direct contact with your skin. Fully dried Urushi cannot cause a rash. The rash normally appears 24 hours after contact and clears up within 2 weeks. Symptoms include itching and blistering. The duration of the rash and its severity depends on a person’s level of immunity. In oder to prevent scarring,  do not scratch the rash.
