Photography workshop / Photographic excursions by Claus Iden
May 29 – June 05, 2021

Nature shapes the landscape again and again with passion. It is especially active in the Maria Valley, the sun warms the air and the water, even the stones seem to come to life. It is not unusual to want to stop time in this unique landscape. Here you get the feeling that you don’t have to do anything, but can do everything. This uniqueness needs to be highlighted photographically. This makes landscape photography challenging and very versatile.

Under the professional guidance of Claus Iden you will learn the basics and techniques of landscape and macro photography. Photographic excursions through the Maria Valley and the village of Morinesio offer many attractive reasons. The focus of the photo week “impressive landscape and macro photography”.

Raku course with Verena Siol

June 28 – Juli 3, 2021

Raku is an old burning technique from Japan. The objects are made of high-fired clay. In the glaze firing process, the workpieces are taken out of the furnace with tongs at the time of glaze melting. The pieces are then smoked under oxygen barrier, with wood chips or other natural materials. The result is crazed and blackened pieces with a surprising surface.
In dialogue with sound, pausing and letting oneself in and out of the surroundings, one’s own person is given a free space to unfold. The design process begins with inspiration, an idea coming from the outside, which can have an effect when it meets inner readiness.

Vessels and figures (plastics) are created consciously and are changed by fire, smoke and water in a unique way.

The focus of this Raku-intensive course lies in the feeling of one’s own formal language, in the integration of nature, the finding of inspiring material structures and forms of plants and woods.
