UPCOMING WORKSHOPS & COURSES:
November 18 – 19 2017 10-16: Artists’ Books
– or how to make your own books, journals and book objects.
Artists’ books are works inspired by the “book” as form and medium. We’ll check out various examples – and screw, glue, sew and clip a number of very personal journals, books and book-objects together from scratch.
Demonstration of different simple structures and bindings, materials and options. Particular attention will be focused on structure and texture. Lots of inspiration for your future art work!
June 10 – June 11: Mixed Media (Due)
A wild and inspiring weekend where we’ll throw all imaginable materials on the table – add and subtract, play with composition, opposition, and simplification – and glue, sew, bind, immerse and transform it all – into lovely picture boards and / or artists’ books. 😉
24-25. June: Universal and Spiritual Symbols (Due)
Here we’ll work with patterns like the MANDALA and FLOWER OF LIFE. As it’s summertime and the garden in full bloom, we also take a special detour looking at relationships between nature and geometry – based on Keith Critchlow’s “The Hidden Geometry of Flowers”.

- WHEN: Both days 10.00 – 16.00

All workshops and courses are hands-on/ creativity-in-practice with an emphasis on issues as simple solutions, sustainability and spirituality. Sessions explore relationships between art, craft, the individual and the environment.
All courses take place at G13, my atelier in Aarhus. Taught in small groups these sessions provide lots of time and space for both individual contemplation, creative conversations and playful exchange during the day – with me as well as fellow students.
