Then this workshop is for you. You will get inspiration, tips, and tricks to create your own piece and have a fun and exciting experience in the company of other participants. For those who want to learn basic techniques, there will be some steps to follow.

All Levels Welcome: Minimum age: 14 years. Max. 10 participants per workshop.
