Workshops (1 lesson)

Butterflies (Saturday 19 September 2020)
The butterfly season is almost over, but by painting them we can still enjoy them. In Japan these winged insects have a special meaning: a butterfly that is hidden in a manuscript or work of art should bring you luck. What a nice way to start this series of workshops.

14.00 – 16.00 PM

Beauty of decay (Saturday 17 October 2020)

Year of the Ox (Saturday 28 November 2020)

Silence (Saturday 12 December 2020)
