Gloria Lindeman – music workshop

Voices are a natural instrument bestowed upon us by birth, while singing itself might just be the most intimate and direct medium to express what lies upon our soul – and we all have the right to use our voices!
Therefore let us put our voices together, whatever they may be in this moment, by learning traditional songs from across the world and with some vocal improvisations, practice and games.

Carpentry workshop Siniša Pocrnčić

Basics of planning and raising simple wooden constructions, choosing types of wood and practical work with carpentry tools.

Blacksmithing workshop - Peter Scheltus

Blacksmithing was a craft that served kings and woodmen,  hunters and cooks, sailors and captains to name a few. Anybody can learn it. It takes or creates deep concentration, depending on how you approach your work. In that concentration creative power is born. At the end of a session of minimum 1 or 2 hours you take home your creation.

Forest gardening workshop – Damir Šeler

On this workshop we will discover all kinds of plants growing in the ‘wilderness’, which of them are eatable, which are medicine and which are simply beautiful. After 3 days, we will all know what is a forest garden, how is it made, how to take care of it, what to remove and what to leave and what can we harvest in all 4 seasons...and make us a salad for lunch on the way!

Wool workshop - Barbara Scheltus

In the wool workshop you will definitely fall in love with wool (again). It is such a great multi purpose material! You can insulate your house or your shoes with it, put it in the bottom of your raised garden bed, make clothes or toys with it and use the grease for hand cream.
