Autumn has come lovely people. We cannot deny it any more. It is, therefore, high time we started coming up with nice activities for this grey time of year. Quite a few times we have you aware of the fabulous, tempting offers by Priceless® Berlin and on this note we will carry on today. This time we have picked out a few activities for you for the cold days that will get your creative juices flowing. DIY has become such a pretty big trend; but in order to develop the right skills for it, think about participating at some of the workshops, that are offered in great abundance all over Berlin. We picked out a few exciting suggestions for you.

On board is also Berlin-re-cycle, whose workshop we recently featured in detail; there, you can work on your own upcycling lamps. Besides that, you can make your own perfume with the help of Frau Tonis or get a professional make-up by the MUD experts.

Mix your own Curry Workshop

As is generally known, there is nothing better against cold feet and grey weather than warm food. Especially when the latter is full of colors and it smells lovely, nothing can go wrong. This is where the focus of the Curry-Workshop lies. Based on the wisdom of Hildegard von Bingen participants will be trained in the effects of every single element of a special curry mix and right afterwards they will have the opportunity to blend their own mix and take it home. Mastercard® cardholders will be able to learn more about the healing effects of every element and spice in advance.

Where: Ölmühle an der Havel, Bergmannstraße 104, 10961 Berlin

When: Make your individual booking here until November 15, 2016

Exclusive Guitar Building Workshop

The sound of the guitar is most of the times of digital instead of analogue nature; one more reason to immerse in the origins of this instrument. After all, it is one of the core elements of the indie-rock-parties of our youth. Martin Meckbach introduces us in this workshop in the construction of guitars. You can choose between an acoustic and a concert guitar and construct it under guidance during a 90-minute workshop.

Where: Gitarren Meckbach, Dunkerstraße 70a, 10437 Berlin

When: Make your individual booking here until March 19, 2017
