Choice of workshops:
Ceramics workshop – under the guidance of a professional instructor, Jarõna Ilo, the master of the Kumu ceramics studio, an artist and a ceramist, you can make something usable (a mug, vase, bowl, platter etc.) or model small figurines; for decorating, you can try stamps or glazing (glazing will be done by the Kumu ceramics master and the items will be ready in two weeks). The whole group can also join in a common project.
Printmaking workshop – under the guidance of a professional printmaker, you can try printing with various materials, such as lace or string, which leave interesting marks on surfaces. If you wish, you can also experiment with drypoint or linocut. Each participant can design and complete a print from beginning to end, including printing on a printing press.
Pin/brooch workshop – this workshop has two options: you can either make a base of your own design from self-hardening clay, onto which you can “print” an image (a detail from a drawing, photo etc.), or you can use the pin machine, which makes pins and key chains out of your chosen image or drawing. Images to be put on the pin can be made in various techniques, such as acrylic paint, watercolour, textile printing or stamps, or you can choose from ready-made motifs.
Subconscious drawing – this workshop is meant for the development of your creativity, for achieving internal balance and for developing relationships within groups. Everybody is capable of expressing his or her fantastic and unique world of imagery through drawing. The images seemingly come from nowhere. Once you’ve found the right state of mind, drawing helps you release unconscious desires, unacknowledged knowledge, obsessions and fantasies. Tension requires a playful format for therapeutic release, but playing is something that grown-ups often deny themselves.
This creative method is both therapeutic and a lot of fun.
Painting workshop – painting under an experienced instructor is a wonderful opportunity for a beginner to take the first steps in art. During the class, we will discuss colours, composition, texture, light and shadow. No limits and a creative atmosphere are the keywords of the painting studio.
