Workshop Day at the n*Studio

Written by Nathalie Kalbach. Posted in Photos, Workshops

Love those n*Studio days every couple of weeks. I set up our livingroom-dining room and kitchen area for workshops and there is a group of about 35 girls…and 1 guy ;) that are signed up through my Hamburg Newsletter (German!) – I can seat about 12.

As we are right next to my studio, there is usually everything right there and I love that we have become a quite close group. We share stories, thoughts and I let them try things out. Often times they are the first ones to try the brand new workshops…sometimes they are the very last ones, like yesterday…with the Timeless Colors Workshop, a Canvas Workshop.

I think I will retire this workshop now…It has been a fun workshop with lot’s of acrylic paint. It always feels weird to retire a workshop…it’s like saying good-bye to a friend that accompanied you for a while- LOL

I always loved the totally different color choices and outcomes of all the canvases my students created- here is Liz’ working on her canvas during the workshops yesterday:

Sudabeh and Kerstin painting along

We had lot’s of yummie food for lunch – the girls always bring the best food for the n*Studio day….yuuummm!!!! It is a very cozy and relaxed atmosphere I want them to feel like home…and our cat thinks their bags are there to inspect and seems to think they are quite ok ;)

My dream is for one day maybe have a studio which can seat more people – I can see a little kitchen included – lots of windows and tables and chairs and for some reason a brick wall….some rusty industry poles in the middle of the wall and a graffiti wall of course. I don’t want to own a store….I just would love to have such a space one day where you can do creative retreats and workshops. Oh well….LOL – I guess that is not up in the air unless I will win in the lottery (which I never play- HA)

The second workshop was a Prima Workshop “Daily Observations”. It was a lot of spray paints involved and they all have become quite experts in using them – and one new student caught up in no time…actually she was finished first with her minialbum  !

And it was awesome to see Jan again – always fun to have him – he has to suffer quite a bit at those workshops with just us girls- LOL. But he is good in keeping us in check – tehehe!

The girls…and guy….get always shown other possible workshops- they pick upon seeing the original – no sneaks…and then vote which workshops to take next. Then we also vote on a next date….quite democratic- LOL- and then I create the new newsletter for Hamburg with all class information and everyone can sign up. It is a first comes first serve basis. This time they voted on “Portrait of a Lady” and “Chalk on The Wild Side” being the next workshops – and the date is August 18, 2012 :) Looking forward seeing my peeps – well, better make sure to get the newsletter done now ….

    Happy Sunday, Nat! Your gathering looked like a very fun time. I am excited about the Uber Media Acrylic Paint class starting tomorrow, and learning new painty techniques.
