Where do we organize workshops?
We can conduct workshops almost anywhere. If you don’t have enough space, we can conduct such workshops somewhere close to nature – e.g. in a park, in a meadow or by a river. We are from Gran Canaria and we can conduct creative workshops throughout the island, as well as in the other Canary Islands.
You can also enjoy the classes online. More about ONLINE WORKSHOPS you will find by clicking here.
Decorating mirrors with mosaics
The mirror, a mysterious object from the world of optics, gives an extraordinary opportunity to observe oneself in the creative process, and by decorating it – in a sense – we decorate what is reflected in it.
Mosaic is a decorative art of creating picture/ patterns on a surface by setting small pieces of stone, marble, tile or glass.
Mosaic coasters are small pieces of art that brighten up spaces. They’re tough, resist water and are attractive. If you combine them with a little creativity you’re all set for a functional home decor piece to adorn your home or gift. This is also a fun DIY project without much technicality.
In this workshop you will design your own mosaic mirror incorporating glass, ceramic tiles, picassiette, gems and fun embellishments. We’ll learn how to design using patterns and color, application process, and how to mix and color grout. After this workshop, you will look at pottery and glass in a whole new way and begin thinking of your next mosaic project!
Upcycling – plant pots
Upcycling will give new life for used packaging and old objects. Processed waste not only gains value, but also becomes unique and unique. With a bit of imagination, you can make almost anything out of garbage – interior decorations, furniture, clothes and everyday items.
Participants will learn about waste management practices and the benefits of upcycling, such as conserving resources and reducing carbon emissions.
Each member will make their own from various elements of their choice – metal cans, plastic bottles, old kettles. Paints, scraps of fabric, moss, dried plants, mosaic elements, etc. will be available for decoration. After making the pots, we will plant succulents in them.
painting mandalas on stones
Mandala is a drawing in a circle, an art technique that is used in working with children, adolescents, and adults. Mandala comes from the Hindu tradition, and its name means “wheel of life”, “whole world”. It has long been noticed that drawing has a therapeutic effect of mandala on its creator.
During our workshops, participants will learn the history and symbolism of mandalas.
Using available materials, everyone will create their own beautiful mandalas. The handmade stone “talismans” will then be packed in cardboard boxes and each participant will take their creations home.
Creative work will be made more pleasant by relaxing songs playing in the background, supporting creative processes.
making electric lamps
Learn how to turn any item into a lamp safely.
During this workshop you will learn the skills needed to create your very own electric lamp, and you will take what you make home on the day!
The lamp will have it’s own plug, switch, 2m of fabric flex, light fittings in your choice of colour and low energy vintage style bulb.
In addition, it will be decorated according to you – it will be made of pieces of wood, a glass bottle, paper, metal, and mosaic elements – it depends on your idea and creativity.
You will be surprised how easy it is to make a lamp and that playing with electricity is fun and enjoyable.
EBRU – PAINTING ON WATER
During the workshops, you will learn and try your hand at the unique Turkish art of painting on Ebru water.
Under my supervision, you will learn how to use all the tools and different types of paints, thanks to which you will create unique colorful patterns on the water surface, which you will finally translate onto paper. In addition, the workshops themselves are also a great way to relax and break away from everyday duties.
The workshops are aimed at people who are encountering the ebru technique for the first time. They are suitable both for people who are interested in artistic work and for amateurs without manual skills.
You will leave the workshop with basic knowledge of the water painting technique – ebru. We will start the meeting with information about the technique of painting on water. Then we will make three basic patterns together: battal, ebru using a comb and flower. We learn all elements of the technique, i.e. applying paint, laying paper, removing work from water and creating patterns, by doing it together. After completing three patterns, each participant spends the remaining time working on their own ideas.
Natural creams and lotions
Eat your cream – these are workshops designed for people who make conscious choices and for all those who do not yet realize how important the impact of what we put on and rub into our skin is.
In times when preservatives, chemical additives and other “miracles” are found in practically everything, you can write for hours about the advantages of self-made cosmetics. Natural extracts from plants and herbs always have a beneficial effect and their skillful use can work wonders for our skin! Our grandmothers knew this and took literally handfuls of nature.
We use only natural ingredients and additives to compose recipes, including: nutritional butters and oils, plant waxes and essential oils 100%. During the workshops, participants use ready-made recipes or together we create unique products tailored to individual needs.
Make your own 100% ecological soaps! Can there be anything more relaxing and positively recharging our batteries than creating our own cosmetics, unique and just for us? Cosmetics with natural ingredients, without chemicals, preservatives and artificial additives? If you love such cosmetic wonders as much as we do, our workshops are just for you!
All soaps are made from vegetable glycerin. They can be colorful, transparent or opaque (milky and pastel).
We create all of them with additions of oils, herbs, petals and other wonders. The various shapes of the molds we use provide endless possibilities for creating patterns, colors and shapes of ready-made cosmetics. We use essential and sometimes fragrance oils to flavor soaps, and special cosmetic dyes to color them. We pack ready-made cosmetics so that they can become a gift for a loved one.
To create soaps, we use a glycerin base that does not contain SLS/SLES (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate) detergents. Thanks to this, our soaps are safe because they do not irritate the skin, do not dry it out or cause allergies. We only use certified natural cosmetic products and recipes that we have proven.
Soy candles are wonderful! Safe for us and the environment because they provide a clean interior atmosphere. They do not smoke when burning, and they emit many times less carbon dioxide than classic candles. When burning soy candles, up to 90% less soot is produced than in the case of candles made of paraffin. Soy candles are also much more efficient than conventional candles. The burning time is half as long as the burning time of a paraffin candle with the same size and wick dimension. If soy wax stains clothes or tablecloths, the stain can be easily washed off with soap and water.
You will learn about the types of scented candles and the differences between paraffin wax and natural waxes. You will also learn the process of making soy candles from the inside out and learn what materials to use when working. You will discover the world of scents and dyes for candles, and learn how essential oils differ from fragrance oils. You will create two personalized soy candles with the scent of your choice under the supervision of an instructor.
Pyrography – painting in wood
Burning into wood – “Painting with Fire”. These are workshops on burning patterns and inscriptions into wood. Out of love for wood, its timelessness and wonderful, soothing properties, an original and one-of-a-kind workshop program was created for all those who value original and ecological home/office decorations. Wood burning is an incredibly effective activity! This skill is professionally called pyrography.
During our workshops, each participant will learn how to burn patterns and inscriptions in wood using a pyrography. Pyrography is not difficult. All you need is a bit of manual skills, imagination, wood and a pyrograph to create a wonderful decoration yourself. Attention! The workshops are very engaging and bring a lot of joy and satisfaction from creating!
Mini forests in jars
Contact with nature is important in many respects. Observing nature calms you down and provides you with a break from the hustle and bustle of the city. Since not everyone can afford a daily walk in the forest and the lack of greenery may bother us, we have prepared unique workshops thanks to which participants will invite real forest plants to their home – all you need to do is make space for a large jar.
“Forest in a jar” is a class during which we will teach participants how to create their own small ecosystem. Once placed in the container, the vegetation does not need any further care – the closed circuit ensures that the small forest has the right amount of moisture to survive. During the workshops, we will present the individual stages of working on a forest jar and provide a lot of useful information about ecology. Creating a miniature forest not only expands knowledge about forest flora – it is also a great opportunity to develop manual skills.

Amazing energy, cooperation without pressure and a lot of laughter. When hands are busy creating, interactions are naturally established between participants and bonds are strengthened. The impressions after the workshop will stay with you for a long time and it is quite possible that you will want more!
