Announcing: Summer Camps!

Isadora’s Workshop at l’Observatoire

Summer is upon us. Although there will be no camp this June, there will be two new camps this July, and two more in August. The number of participants is limited to 10, so make sure you sign up early!

In line with the new direction taken by Isadora’s Workshop, there will be more tinkering, more science and more discovery in these completely unique art-based workshops. Another novelty is that guest artists, scientists or tinkerers will make their appearance, giving the whole workshop new momentum. Art needs inspiration, so we are going out to get it, and coming back in to do it!

If you want to look at past workshops, check here.

And here are the workshops for this season:

Explorator’s Camp (July and August camps)

Come be a Robinson Crusoe for a week. Learn basic skills for the outdooor. Rope lashing, map-making and navigating, making objects from wood (wood-carving), documenting the world around you… Being an artist in the wild can be hard work, but is very rewarding!

Run by artist-scientist Isabelle Desjeux, these camps provide structured time to learn a skill and open time to discover and perfect personal interests. A guest artist will make an appearance, providing a different perspective!

Making friends is also a great part of the camp and we invite parents to join us on Friday, from 11:00am onward to come and view an exhibition of the works, and meet the new friends. Bring some food to share and we’ll have a picnic – outside if the weather permits.

Book-Making Camp (July camp only)

Come spend a week discovering how to make books. From building the structure to filling it up. Whether to sketch, write down ideas, or keep notes, many different people keep books. In this camp, we will explore what “BOOK” means to us, and find many different ways to expand on the definition.

Each participant will be given ample space for exploration and the opportunity to pursue their favorite medium.
