Our first Kintsugi experience and it was great! Nilo is very patient and encouraged us to internalize and share our takeaways from the session, and that creates a very deep personal meaning for each participant. Highly recommend to check her out if you are considering a Kintsugi session!

Nilo was very knowledgeable & attentive to each of the participants. She also provided a good overview of Kintsugi and the philosophy of it & allowed ample time for each of us to share our reflections.

Prior to the visit, the guide and directions to the studio was also very detailed and empathetic such as the carpark suggestions for those who drive.

Overall a very experiential & introspective workshop and I definitely recommend anyone, or even corporate organisations to experience it !

Thank you for today’s class. I came with the intention to fix my teapot’s handle but I felt I took away an important lesson on self care. .. The parting message was really unexpected. It’s a great reminder to not be afraid to seek help when needed. I was really surprised . Thank you very much.

My fiancée and I had a wonderful time at Kintsugi.


We've been to other pottery courses before but this one felt quite therapeutic in that we get to restore broken pottery, making it more beautiful than it was before. Huge plus if you're the kind who likes fixing things.

The trainer, Ms Nilo, was encouraging and affirming, and guided us every step of the way.

Would highly recommend it as a way to create memories (esp. on a date), and artsy pieces/containers to use in your home.

Such a sanctuary. Felt so welcome by Nilo the moment we stepped in, and it was an afternoon well spent. Not only the philosophy is beautiful, the process of kintsugi is also therapeutic. The best part of it is that we get to spend some time having a conversation with one another about life, imperfection, and resilience. A great bonding time with friends!

Nilo from Kintsugi Art Studio is very well-versed and knowledgeable with the art and technique of Kintsugi. The session with Nilo was so enjoyable and therapeutic! She was extremely patient in guiding me (someone with zero art background) to ensure I’m doing it correctly. 10/10
I would recommend it to anyone who wants to take up a fun art workshop or just try their hands at kintsugi. Anyone can do it! 💯

Chanced upon Kintsugi Art Studio while I was looking for an activity to do as a couple.

During the session, we can tell Nilo was incredibly passionate in her craft even though it was a 2 hour beginner class. She made us feel so comfortable as she shared her own personal experience on how she get to know and healed through Kintsugi and how this can also aid us in our love life as a couple. 

Setting was well equipped and location was decorated in a manner that it felt therapeutic and calming. 

 

We would highly recommend this class for anyone from all walks of life to attend and find a deeper connection to themselves, friends and partners.

Had a therapeutic kintsugi session with Nilo. Nilo is a very good facilitator in explaining each step of kintsugi and how it can be used as a form of reflection and healing. From breaking of a ceramic to piecing the broken parts together, there were many factors that were outside our control but it’s still beautiful to see everything come back together in its own way

Just had an incredible Kintsugi pottery mending workshop with my new friend, Nilofar! It was such a therapeutic experience and I feel like I have been able to heal a little bit after everything I have been through. Nilofar was amazing listening to my story and guiding me through the Kintsugi method with patience and care. I couldn't have asked for a better teacher and companion on this journey. I'm so grateful for this experience. Highly recommend.! Thank you Nilofar!

I came to Kintsugi Art Studio with no expectations. It was cool to come here to understand the history of Kintsugi. I'm very happy with the 'healing' of my bowl and it has turned out so unique just like how we heal in our on unique way.

Kintsugi teaches us that sometimes it takes a while to put things together again. You just really need to be patient and trust the journey. I was encouraged to accept the imperfections - Wabi Sabi! I'm really happy with my masterpiece! Thank you!

We appreciate the guidance you provided and the peaceful environment. Even though we may have taken a longer time, you were patient, hence exemplifying the therapeutic meaning of not rushing to heal. Thanks for this!

Overall super therapeutic and after spending some time doing Kintsugi with Nilo, it became easier to accept the unique flaws of my ceramic piece and that sometimes, some broken bits can't be fixed but it doesnt make the piece any less beautiful. Much like how our family and friends choose to accept us at all stages of our lives even though we all may be broken at certain times.

This Kintsugi session provided me with the space to quieten down and create something beautiful. Breaking and 'healing' the ceramics allowed me to reflect about my own personal evaluation. Nilo was a great host and guide. Overall, an unforgettable and enjoyable experience!

I like the idea that your cracks can be mended and that you could be beautifully imperfect. What Kintsugi has taught me is that every piece of pottery would crack at different joints. Each fault line has a unique story to tell and each of them heals differently. I'm thankful to have met Mrs Anand, for her kind words and hospitality.
