Learn A New Skill With Indian Celebrities Through At Home With Airbnb

    What Makes It Awesome

    Now that all our travel plans have been halted indefinitely, my way of exploring the world was through Airbnb’s Online Experiences; for my last experience, I got to make fresh pasta with a woman in Italy. But, well, I was hoping to learn something from Indian artists and chefs, too, (hashtag vocal for local) so when Airbnb introduced At Home With Airbnb, I booked my first experience super quick. From Indian chefs and mixologists to yoga instructors and interior designers, there were a ton of classes to choose from, all held by Indian influencers.

    I signed up for the art of calligraphy class held by the founder of The Bombay Lettering Company, Sanjana Chatlani. As someone with zero calligraphy experience, it was a super cool introductory class, and Sanjana was really patient, making sure everyone understood each step before moving on. Once the class ended, she also shared a bunch of resources for us to refer back to so we could keep practicing.

    If art isn’t your thing, there’s a yoga session with the founder of Sarva Yoga, a home training session with Deepika Padukone’s trainer, and tons of food related experiences like zero waste cooking with the head chef of Mahe and a cocktail mixing class with the ambassador of Monkey Shoulder.

    Price: INR 2,261 for the calligraphy experience

    Pro-Tip

    The classes get booked super quickly so booking a week in advance is ideal so you can get your preferred timing. And, in case you want to make it a group thing with all your friends, you can book an entire private session for 11 or more guests!
