with Barbara Perquin

The workshop

As the first introduction to sculpture, or for those who want the peace and space to work. We work in marble and other types of stone from the area. In principle we work directly in the stone with hammer and chisel, machines can be used when necessary.

Sculpture doesn’t have to mean a carved stone. For those who do not use stone cutting, it is possible to work spatially with stone in another way. Other materials can also be used, such as plaster, clay, metal, wood. Without an idea for a sculpture or even convinced not to be creative at all, we will find a starting point somewhere. From there we continue to work towards an end result. The workshop focuses on skill, training the eye, and becoming aware of visual language. The landscape appeals to the imagination and in nature we will see so many forms. By watching and doing we create also space in our head!

The program

Four days a week we work in the morning at 09:00 to 12:00. During the rest of the days you are given the possibility either to take a part in an excursion or schedule your own time. Every afternoon the bus heads down to the beach.
