This is our inaugural year.
Next to the Scout hall, Thursday 15th - Sunday 18th, from 11 am till 4 pm.
Make a work of art in 30 minutes under guidance of professional artists, inspired by whatever you can find in a treasure pile of discarded materials. There will be woodworking, welding, hot-glue- gunning and all manner of other tools.
You can learn some tool skills but the focus is on creativity, to see form in objects where there was no form before. The guides will help you with that.
Bring your own inspiration! Maybe you already have an idea and even some raw materials? Bring them with you and we will help you find matching material in our pile.
We have set up workshop under a big tarp next to the Scout hall. Wear closed shoes and a mindful head on your shoulders. Wear long trousers and sleeves if you want to be welding.
Joey Ruigrok van der Werven is creator of this workshop and he is passionate about everybody having a go at making a work of Art. He has been teaching and mentoring fellow artists and amateurs alike for most of his life.
