Letterpress printing

Pre-school and older
This workshop centres on typographic text design, as well as letter-setting and printing using traditional techniques. Kids create short stories, poems or letter images on a variety of themes. Individual colour and paper selection make each print unique.


Grade 3 and above
In earlier times, special forms had to be produced for the printing of images: the motifs were etched in metal or carved from wood. In this workshop, kids can try either one of these techniques - etching or woodblock, or they can learn more about the artistic printing of frottage and monotype.

Computer lab

Grade 3 and above
Creating texts and images, editing, enhancing, layouts and printing: all of these are the focus of our computer workshop. Depending on the topic, digital cameras and a graphic program are also employed.

Digital photography

Grade 4 and above
Interesting photo images are made in the urban space with a digital camera on a variety of themes, and then edited on the computer. Kids are taught the basic techniques of image correction and effect application, and are made familiar with the possibilities of photo manipulation.

Radio studio

Grade 4 and above
Grab the microphone!  A variety of journalistic and artistic radio forms are recorded under professional supervision: From interviews to surveys, mini-dramas, a museum sound collage, or even original texts are brought to life - cinema for the ears! Afterwards, the group receives the edited material (mp3) for personal use.
