Open Studio

Do you feel like giving your creativity a boost? Then come to our Open Studio on Sunday 18 February 18, Wednesday 21 February or Sunday 25 February. Under the guidance of an artist you can get started with the workshop Beeldvlakken (Image Planes). Based on photos of paintings you can see in the museum, you will make your own work of art out of felt. Get to work on this puzzle. At the end, of course, you can take your creation home.
