Art & Coast for Women

A creative week on the mudflats

This year we are once again offering a week at the Haus am Watt dedicated to art, culture and the coast: A mixture of studio days and excursions.

For all those who are curious and keen to experiment, for beginners and advanced artists.

On the studio days we will playfully awaken creative resources and let ourselves be inspired by this picturesque farm, the landscape in the Wadden Sea National Park, the colours and moods on the dyke.

After many warm-up exercises, we will design coloured surfaces and structures, which will serve as material for individual collage series in small format. Far away from everyday life, it's all about making, about playing with
colours and shapes, fun and relaxation.

The creative programme is complemented by two excursions:

1st excursion -  guided mudflat tour (half day) - During the guided mudflat walks you will experience nature with all your senses. You will see the vast landscape, hear the wind, smell the sea, taste the salt on your lips and feel the mud under your feet - all a perfect start to your holiday in the Wadden Sea National Park.

2nd excursion - beach day in Sankt Peter Ording
In beautiful contrast to the Wadden Sea with its salt marshes is the incomparable, wide sandy beach of Sankt-Peter-Ording. You will experience a day on the beach, in the cafés, on the promenade or in the beach sauna - in the evening we will meet for a joint restaurant visit.
