Welcome to an Intenational Art&Craft Workshop II second time organised by Social Thought Club Initatives as a part of international Grundtvig Workshops project.
The objective of this Grundtvig action is to enable adult learners to participate in Workshops taking place in another European country participating in the Lifelong Learning Programme.
From now on we have a real Tower of Babel and mixture of artistic forms in Lucznica. It’s Social Thought Club “Inicjatywy” which, for the second time already, is organizing International Art&Craft Workshop in Akademia Lucznica. For the whole week twenty persons will explore the ins and the outs of different art forms. Participants are all very different: come from Slovenia, Finland, Turkey, Iceland, Latvia, Bulgaria, Ireland, Greece and Poland. The youngest is less than 30 years old, the oldest one will turn 70 this year. They were clerks, accountants, journalists, projects coordinators. But there is also a lot what they have in common. They are active, curious, open-minded and ready to learn new things. In 10-persons groups they will get to know one after another different forms of art: silk painting, ceramics and handmade paper. The outcome of the workshop will be taken by the participants home as keepsakes. You can follow us on our webpage: www.inicjatywy.org/artandcraft2012.
