Open workshop in the
Bauhaus Building

Every Wednesday, 4 – 6 pm
(school vacations and public holidays etc. excluded)
Bauhaus Building
Admission free >> Registration required

Age 8 – 14 years

Whether with or without prior knowledge: Everyone finds a place in the Open Workshop! We take the Bauhäuslers and their interest in experimentation as a model for our own work in the workshop. For the Bauhäuslers, experimentation with techniques and materials was a basic prerequisite for creation. We would like to take up this idea and print our own typefaces, develop letters and collages, build masks and shoot stop-motion animations. There are no limits to the imagination! Participants will be accompanied by artists, designers and art educators.

Meeting place:
Visitor Center Bauhaus Building Dessau
Gropiusallee 38, 06846 Dessau-Roßlau, Germany

Water Culture

12 + 19 Oct and 9 + 16 + 23 + 30 Nov

Small and large investigations in the Open Workshop provide insights into the world of water as an invaluable elixir of life. We engage in exercises on the perception and effect of water. Light reflections, transparency, reflections and optical illusions play a role. We smell and taste water in its various forms, dye T-shirts, make inks, boil down natural materials and blot them onto different types of paper. All with the tool water!

From A for „Ahle“ to Z for „Zwirn“

7 + 14 + 21 Dec

Whether with thread, cardboard and paper or experimental materials such as lint roller and shaving foam: Every Wednesday in December, in the open workshop of the Bauhaus, we will bring books and our own stories to life, making monsters and heroes pop up and bind a delicious book to bite into.
