Own workshop

The following courses are taught here in Mother Earth’s workshop. In principle, we work for five days once a month.
You can determine if you want to come a part of the day, a day or more days. Also you can determine how often you want to come.

The different course blocks have a specific theme.
In mutual consultation it is also possible to learn something other than the theme indicated for different data.

Excluding material

You pay for every daypart and when you have 10 signed strips you can shop at Mother Earth’s shop for € 25,00.

Helping hands

If you want to keep costs low and can come regularly, or for several days at a time, you can also choose to work with the ‘helping hands’ strip card.
Or you can come 5 days and do the card in one go.

On 10 dayparts you pay for 2 dayparts when you have a class. Those are the first 2 half-days on your card.
The remaining 8 times you have a class 4 times and 4 times you help in my workshop with the usual activities.
This may vary from taking care of materials for the shop, carding or felting, depending on your experience, possibilities and wishes.
You will be included in the flow of Mother Earth.
The helping hands are the force of the workshop.
The additional advantage for you is the possibility to practice, practice and again practice. An effective way to really master the craft.

Practice makes perfect!
