The focus is on experiencing the ancient material of clay, modelling from the participant’s own movement, and feeling. A one-off morning or afternoon workshop lasts three hours. Depending on the theme, there are also workshops where participants work several times. There is room for four participants in an atmospheric work area next to the atelier, situated in the former teacher’s house of Zuid-Eierland. Ideally, workshops are organised on Tuesdays; option to schedule them on a different day for groups by agreement. De Eiland Galerij for more information
