Sculpture week in France
This year Les Gonies organizes a sculpture week. For years Els de Quaasteniet has been coming to our domain in the autumn to teach sculptors from the surrounding area. This year this course will also be given for anyone who wants to combine their holiday with a creative week.
We start sunday at 10.00 am with a detailed explanation of form and image aspects. Els brings in a theme. From this follow the ideas for an image, and get started! You work at your own pace and the emphasis of the lessons is in the morning.
Mirella is the creative chef and takes care of the internal human being, we have breakfast, lunch and dinner with each other in the group. Friday at the end of the week, we close the week with a small festive exhibition where guests are very welcome.
Els de Quaasteniet has been giving sculpture lessons under the name buiteninbeeld.nl for more than 20 years. Her own work can be viewed on the website under this name. The course is for beginners and advanced and work can be done in stone or wood. All tools for this are present, except for the material itself, so stone or wood. For beginners it is advisable to consult with Els. There are different stone species, hard and soft these you can buy from sculptors. If you want to edit wood please let us know, in other material and tools. What is useful to buy yourself is its own dust glasses. Feel free to bring pictures of your favorite sculptor’s own work and/or books!
We work completely outside, pleasure of doing is paramount.
This week includes coffee, tea, breakfast, lunch and dinner!! The cost is € 495,- pp. For the accommodation you can find the information on the website and decide whether you are camping or want a more luxurious possibility. Partners are welcome on site and can possibly eat with them.
