What you'll do

During our time together: - you will learn what Kintsukuroi is and the principles on the base of this ancient Japanese technique; - using this metaphor, you will reflect on the imperfection (of an object, your journey, your life); - you will practice this technique with a bowl and you will find new meanings of some aspects of you or your life that you don't like; - you could share your reflections and your work with companions, in a cosy home and you will cuddle yourself with hot tea and sweet biscuits; - you will bring back a unique art object that will remember your personal Kintsukuroi experience.

Chiara

I'm a facilitator and coach, for 4 years I have helping people to use their creativity to reach their goals, realize their wishes and stay well with themselves and others. I’m part of a large international community and I participate at several conferences and seminars about creativity and creative problem solving, all over the world. I'm part of the board that every year, since 17 years ago, organizes in Italy the biggest European Conference about Creative Problem Solving, Innovation and Changing: CREA Conference. During these events, I share and meet new tools and technique. Some years ago, I met Kintsukuroi like a metaphor to integrate parts of our life that we don't like and making them beautiful and precious. Now I love to open the door of my home to spread it to as people as possible.

Where you'll be

The experience will be at my apartment. It is comfortable and bright. You will feel the warmth and the welcoming of a home environment. We will work around a table and sitting in a circle. Mellow and soft music will follow us during this experience.

Things to keep in mind

Cancellation policy

Any experience can be cancelled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase, or at least 7 days before the experience starts.

Communication policy

Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside the Airbnb website or app.

Guest requirements

Up to 6 guests ages 11 and up can attend.

What to bring

I suggest you wear comfortable clothes. You can bring an apron to avoid to get dirty.

More tips

The porcelain is as beautiful and fragile as life. Both of them can crash into many pieces but this is not a good reason why to stop to live intensely. We can learn to "reassemble ourselves" after the adversities, to "pick up the pieces" and make precious our imperfection.
