The creative workshops will be completed by delicious meals, cooked by the locals, as well as by a serene and refined ambiance. By choice, touristic activities are available, to discover the area.

Price 270 euro / 1215 ron

Our workshop teaches botanical illustration from general to detail, and from the naturalist drawing and watercolour, towards stylisation and transfer to the engraving technique of lino cut. Saturday is dedicated to pencils and watercolour, as techniques of realistic depiction, therefore an exercise of observation, and discovery of the absolute geometry of plants, while identifying details and miniature textures. At the end of the day, each student will frame his/her favourite painting, achieved during the two sessions of painting. Sunday we learn how to stylize the drawing thorough its reduction to essential elements, and we transfer it into lino cut, exercise followed by manual imprint on textile – by choice, tote bag or cushion cover.
