Abstract improvisation
on XXL canvases

Sunday, 15th May
16:00 - 19:00

“Art is a natural way to practice mindfulness. The colors, textures and sounds of creating pull us into the moment. You don’t need any previous training to meditate through art, just a willingness to draw like a child, with freedom and a sense of curiosity.” That is why we are inviting you to bring your freedom, curiosity, and inner-child down to our studio. Paint away your pressures, simply focus your mind on embracing messiness, and let art express the things you can’t articulate.

Free Trial

Planter Painting

Print your own bag

Sunday, 8 May 11:00-15:30

This workshop provides an introduction to a classical printmaking technique through the process of making a linocut print. The design (or drawing) is copied onto the linoleum surface and carved with a special V-shaped knife. Then the linoleum plate is inked with a roller and impressed onto paper or fabric. The finished print will be a mirror image of your original drawing. The actual printing is done by hand and can be repeated several times and with different colors.
Available with Brunch option!

Oooooooohmmmm

Jump into the mesmerising world of Mandalas with Marc Wittlin

Drawing mandalas is a wonderful activity for meditation, self-expression, quieting the mind and soothing the body. You don’t need to be an artist to create beautiful mandalas or benefit from the practice.

In this workshop, you will learn what a mandala is and a demonstration on how to construct the outline of a mandala with some fine markers and give it a beautiful design. By the end of the workshop, you will have their very own mandala to decorate and meditate more often using this art form.

Urban Arts Workshop

An authentic journey to the land of markers, stencils, tags and spray cans.

Ready to get down and dirty with graffiti? Enjoy a hands-on lesson where you will learn about this controversial art form. In recent years graffiti and street art have become increasingly more popular and appreciated by the public. Simple scrawls have evolved into detailed mural compositions. Now is the time to learn more about this exploding artistic phenomenon!

Fluid Art

with @janinasartventures

Acrylic Pouring is a rather hypnotic and meditative approach to creating abstract art which often leads to stunning results... and even when it doesn't, the process is so satisfying and fun.

By making the acrylic paint liquid, it can be poured onto a canvas in a multitude of ways letting the paint splat, ooze and mix right in front of your eyes creating unimaginable patterns just as you tilt your canvas. It is all in your hands! Suitable for beginners, experts, and all lovers of some mess and chaos, this 3-to-4-hour workshop will look at how different techniques and colour combinations can create abstract art so beautiful, everyone will think you planned it all along.

Candle making

Galentine‘s Brunch!!!

This ultimate Sunday morning winter warmers workshop focused on combining some of our favourites: candles and brunch!

Guests can learn the art of candle making, by creating three natural wax candles, hand poured with the guidance of Aiste of @nice_things_ch. Prepare to get hints about fragrance and colour blending, wax and wick sizes, candle care and the techniques behind melting, mixing and pouring. To make the experience even more wholesome, we offer an optional Brunch menu from La Manufacture to enjoy while the wax is cooling down.

The Art of Drawing Letters

Handlettering "bootcamp":

What is urban sketching? It's basically drawing on location, capturing and documenting what we see from direct observation, indoors and outdoors.

This course is created for sketching enthusiasts with no prior experience, that wish to begin their sketching journey.

Golden Tears (in the style of Gustav Klimt)

Guided Event (Maestro)

Saturday, 22nd June,
16:30 - 19:00

While this painting - Freya’s Tears - is often attributed to Gustav Klimt, it isn’t one of his. This evocative piece was created by Anne Marie Zilberman whose work leans toward facial close-ups. Though not a Klimt, it captures the duality of weeping - that tears can be both for joy and sorrow. And either are as valuable as gold.

Sunday, 9th June,
15:00 - 18:00

Unlike our other workshops, where we focus on certain techniques and steps to reach a particular result, here we are all about the process of creating, and not the end-result. Perhaps you’ll create something beautiful, perhaps you’ll create something beautifully chaotic. Either way, the only goal is to let go of our obsession with goals. Embrace your intuition and let go of your thoughts, all we ask you to bring is yourself.

Golden Tears (in the style of Gustav Klimt)

Guided Event (Maestro)

Saturday, 22nd June,
16:30 - 19:00

While this painting - Freya’s Tears - is often attributed to Gustav Klimt, it isn’t one of his. This evocative piece was created by Anne Marie Zilberman whose work leans toward facial close-ups. Though not a Klimt, it captures the duality of weeping - that tears can be both for joy and sorrow. And either are as valuable as gold.
