Sculpting in Stone (Thursday)

Creating beauty with quality

Sculpture is as old as mother earth. First functional and for many centuries also a favorite material in art. To think that stone has always been a silent witness to our history.

Sculpting is the sum of learning the craft, learning to look and think three-dimensionally, having confidence in the working process and experiencing the peace and pleasure that working in stone brings, in addition to the stone itself.

Please note: This class is taught in Dutch, but the instructor will translate into English or Italian if it’s requested.

Experimenting in the Darkroom

Embrace the process

This 4-session workshop focuses on experimentation in the darkroom. We will look at what happens in the darkroom when we go off the beaten path and let the different techniques we’ll use, with chemistry and light, surprise us.

This is not a course in which you’ll learn to print a photograph in a traditional way. Each class begins with an explanation of a particular technique and with looking at work by well-known photographers who have experimented with these techniques. Of course, we will also look at each other’s work.
