Here are the Classes:



 30.05.2015 – 10,00 hs. – 14,00 hs.

Comienza en el momento en que te sientas. Una experiencia que es claramente Art Journaling. Euforia, sensación de control, sorprendente capacidad de respuesta de los materiales artísticos, como si fueran simplemente una extensión de ti.

Hay una palabra para esta experiencia creativa: Artvergnugen! Es lo que hace de tu journal una obra de arte.

Acompaña a Nathalie es este taller de medio día y juega con los diferentes materiales y mediums artísticos. Aprende técnicas, consejos y trucos para llevar tu art journaling más allá y convertirlo en Artvergnugen.


It starts the moment you sit down, an experience that is distinctly Art Journaling. A quick exhilaration, a sense of control, the art media’s surprising responsiveness as if they were simply an extension of you.

There is a word for this creative experience: Artvergnugen ! Artvergnugen is what makes your journal a piece of art.

Join Nathalie for a half day workshop and play with different art media and supplies. Learn techniques, tips and tricks to take your art journaling further and turn it into Artvergnugen. 




30.05.2015 – 16,00 hs. – 20,00 hs.

¿Ves esos carteles de madera con frases creativas y te preguntas cómo hacerlos? ¿Piensas que tu escritura “no tiene gracia” y te gustaría que fuera espectacular?

No tienes excusa. En nuestro taller “words on wood”, con M. Carmen Sánchez (Cuchy), pintaremos un panel de madera, envejeciéndolo y haremos que nuestra cita favorita destaque con una tipografía elegante, divertida y escrita por tí.

Además, las técnicas aprendidas podrás utilizarlas en tu art journal o en trabajos de scrapbooking.

Acompáñanos y deja que hablen las palabras.

Do you see those wooden panels with witty quotes and do you ask yourself how to do them? Do you think your handlettering is “dull” and you would like to make it stunning?

You do not have any excuse. In our workshop “words on wood” with M. Carmen Sánchez (Cuchy), we will paint a wooden panel, distress it and we will make our favourite quote to pop up with an elegant and funny typo, handwritten by you.

Besides, you could use the learned techniques in your art journal or in scrapbooking works.

Join us and let the words speak


Besos and hope to see some of you there!
