If you do not have this kind of equipment but still want to learn to photograph the aurora and go home with incredible photos and memories then do not worry because we put at disposal a Professional DSLR Kit with a wide angle lens.

See you soon !!

The weather and cloud cover are important factors in the observation of the northern lights, which is why the place where we go can vary to increase as much as possible our chances of observing them.

We will tell you the basics of the letterpress printing technique; we will go over each of the steps involved in the process, set up the parts of the press, and talk about its uniqueness and the artistic opportunities it offers.

You will have your own creative moment. You will design your own original postcards with the patterns, clichés and movable types-letters which you will choose from the ones available for the workshop. All postcards are made with this technique, in a truly tactile experience.

The full day workshop is for more experienced participants. You will be guided depending on your interests and level. We will have more time for extended demonstrations of both techniques and experiment to further develop your skills.

Working and living both in Iceland and Scotland for many years has influenced me very much. The beautiful nature, lava, mountains and rivers all is a inspiration into my art, important enough for me to want to share with others and clay is my medium to do this.

Enjoy a relaxing, creative time playing on the potter's wheel. Be prepared to experiment!

About the host

I have been making ceramics for over thirty years and teaching courses since 1984. I have a BA degree in ceramic design and studied both in Iceland and Scotland. My artwork is influenced by the beautiful nature of both countries.
