: Scrap-diary :
Scrapbooking? Sounds fancy, but it’s really only about cutting and gluing stuff into a book!
Through collecting and saving the ordinary objects we notice; like a leaf, some memorable
ticket, image or text; we learn more about who we are and what we like through creating
art!

: Polymer clay :
In this workshop we will practice working with the colorful plastic clay called “Cernit” – to
make our own objects and ornaments. Theme of the day will be letters from different
alphabets of the world! Language skills are important, but here we will only see alphabets
for their beautiful forms. If you want to freestyle a design we always encourage that too.
Make a candle holder, a wall decor or maybe a bracelet?

Let’s get physical! We will start the evening with some free movement in the fitnesspark to
relax and get out of our thoughts, and to prepare ourselves for the real theme of the
evening: wishes. With colorful street chalks we will take over the place with drawings and
writings about our biggest wishes and hopes. To our help we have a “word list” made up of
mystical symbols…

3D to get the imagination going – but the possibilities are infinite!
