About the event
Prepare for an extraordinary adventure with our Kanpai & Kintsugi. Imagine a setting where the artistry of Kintsugi, the practice of mending broken pottery with gold, merges seamlessly with the joy of sake tasting.
Here, you won't just attend a class. You'll celebrate the unique beauty found in imperfection, as you live in the moment, sipping sake, taking shattered objects, and turning them into works of art.
It's more than just a class. Embrace the present moment and celebration of resilience. With Kanpai & Kintsugi!
