Workshops.

— Drawing a Live Model by Anna Maria Vargiu —
Group size: 10 people
Price: 4€
Time: 1 Hour.
Indoors
Hi everyone! I’m Anna Maria Vargiu and I’m a fine artist working in Groningen. After leaving the art academy some years ago, I found a way of drawing and painting from life that is quick and efficient and I’ve been teaching my technique to many art enthusiasts. You’ll find that learning to draw accurately actually requires a very abstract approach. Do you want me to show you? Then join my 1 hour crash course about drawing a live model!
— Contact Improvisation and Partnering by Dorentina Mahaj —
Group size: 5-6 groups of two.
Price: 3€ per person
Time: 45 min.
Outdoors
Since the past 20 years, I have been dancing modern, jazz and contemporary dance, taught a variety of dance groups in Germany and currently create choreographies as a dancer in a student dance group in Groningen. Since a few years, I have delved deeper into authentic movement and tried to experience movement from a less structured perspective. In this workshop, you will be invited to explore the feeling of falling, rolling, counterbalance, attentiveness and responsiveness to your partner and surroundings, and last but not least our breath.
For this workshop you can register with a friend/partner (both need a ticket), or you can come alone and be paired with another person. No need for any prior dance experience.
— Roeks Rariteiten Collage Table by Marucshka Poolman —
Group size: 10 people
Price: 4€
Time: 1 Hour.
Indoors
Assemblage-art is a form of 3D collage-art where you can use every material you can think of (not just paper). Roek thinks that collage-making is one of the fundamental skills that you need in finding your own style of creation and self-expression.
So come over, find your material, get your glue and cutting knives and start creating your universe. Looking forward to meeting you!

Group size: 5-6 groups of two.
Price: 4€
Time: 30 min.
Indoors
Have you always wanted to learn how to give a relaxing massage? My name is Elaine and I’m a massage therapist, based in Groningen. In my course, you will learn an easy back massage of 30 minutes. The course will be taught to couples, so both partners will be able to learn to give and receive a massage. So bring your girlfriend, best friend, mother, grandma, or neighbour!
— Basics of Archery by Bodil and Jeremy —
Group size: 2 per 15min session.
Price: 4€
Time: All day.
Outdoors
Hello there! We are excited to show you the art of archery. It’s both a relaxing and yet quite the physical activity. We both started practicing archery when we were young. In 2020 we bought our first bow and started teaching the basics to our friends and family. Now we feel honoured to introduce it to you.
We have a heavy recurve bow with a pull weight of 40 lbs (20 kg) and a recurve hunting bow with a pull weight of 30 lbs (15 kg). Both are very different, so feel free to try out both! Do keep in mind that the bowstring could hit you on your arm or hand, so please bring gloves with you to protect your hands.
— Hoopdance for Beginners by Inka Pyykkönen —

Price: 4€
Time: 1 Hour.
Outdoors
Hi, I’m Inka and I fell totally in love with hooping and other flow arts 3 years ago. In my workshop I’ll teach some beginner tricks and handling of the hoop! In the end of the class we’ll put together a small combo of the moves we learned.
— Tai Chi Basic Workshop by Sifu Manlung Tang (Luk Hop Moon Martial Club) —
Group size: 12 people.
Price: 3€
Time: 1 Hour.
Outdoors
Tai Chi is an ancient martial art that, besides combat, mainly focuses on health, balance, energy and The Qi. Tai Chi aims to promote health and vitality. It is suitable for everyone regardless of age and physical condition. At first glance, Tai Chi looks like slow gymnastics, but it is much more than that. Tai Chi has an important effect on the body and mind. The exercises are focused on unification of body and mind and is therefore also called a movement art.
