I teach traditional crafts (mainly spoon carving and leatherworking) to both adults and children. While many workshops are at schools and such, and therefore not open to the general public, I also try to teach workshops open to anyone a couple of times per year. For a calendar of these workshop, see below.

Would you like private lessons in spoon carving or leatherworking? Feel free to contact me.

For workshops at schools, please contact OneDayArtist.

On Sunday the 22nd of July you can join me for an afternoon of spoon carving at my garden in the Stadspark in Groningen. [FULL, contact me if you’d like to be on the waiting list]
