In the photo studio, the Open House is all about printing. Various printing techniques such as lino printing and risography can be tried out. Felix Peters and the Unterdruck Kollektiv will also be there. Anyone who has previously taken part in the creative tour "Explore and print" will have the opportunity to put their discoveries on paper.
Culture camp in the gallery
Hang out around the indoor campfire or make crazy creepy-crawlies and creatures from a wide variety of materials - an exuberant camp atmosphere awaits in the gallery in the depot.
Buttons & scraps:
Using old magazines, brochures, maps, stamps, sequins, glitter and lots of fun, Pia Orfanidis' studio will be snipping, collaging and, last but not least, pressing everything into the form of badges. All materials are available and you can bring your own motifs (on paper) if you wish.
Bärbel Thier-Jaspert and Michael Jaspert design cards and bookmarks with visitors in their studio, which are given an individual touch with embossed prints and stamps.
With the diligent support of PIDOS Kinderclub and DEW21, Christmas angels and poinsettias are created from old book pages for festive decorations at home.
