Workshops

The workshops are for people who love nature and art. If you like to spend a couple of hours with nature, smell, touch, grind, cook and learn how to extract colors and paint, you are very welcome to the workshop. There is no need to have any artistic background.

Our workshops preferably (if the weather allows) taking place in the natural and open areas. 

We start by getting to know our natural materials we will be using in the workshop.  Those vary from dried/fresh flowers, plants, spices, roots and more. We will extract colors, create our own swatch color pallet and paint on paper or canvas.

 

All material is provided.
