Join us for a week of creativity. Our residence is a
magnificent 500-year-old palazzo in Umbria, Italy.
This ancient home is located right in the village of San Gemini.
Learn Japanese quilting and Sashiko embroidery. We will share our knowledge of the
Japanese traditions using beautiful materials and wasting nothing.
Choose to focus on piecing or slow stitching.
Berri will take you through the steps of piecing Kimono silk and cotton to
make a Japanese offering bag.
Kimberly will teach the art of Sashiko- a form of stitching
used as decorative reinforcement and functional embroidery.
The local coffee shop is the center of the community and the
gelateria is a perfect spot for a quick treat during a break.
Daniella, our personal chef, will prepare amazing five-course dinners.
There is an option to take a cooking class in the home of
Lorena Autori, a world-known chef located right in San Gemini.
An excursion to Orvieto is included in the agenda for some shopping and
