De houwer (“the sculptor”) combines nature, art and enjoyment in the stunning Oldambt region.

Here you can spend the night and develop spiritually.

About De Houwer

“I never had the ambition to become an artist; it just came on my path. It stirred my soul and I felt: I am an artist.”

Sculpting workshops

You can take regular classes or just enjoy a day out together with your team. We now also organize a workshop for children.

All possibilities

Staying at the campsite

Planning a weekend break? If you are looking for art, culture and tranquillity, the Oldambt in Groningen is the place to be. The campsite is located on an acre of field directly adjacent to a forest and to fishing and boating water. Allow yourself to be pleasantly surprised by the surroundings!  

Enjoying art

Genieten van kunst

Besides following courses, you can also visit the tasteful sculpture garden and the studio. Antique statues from temples, sculpted in sandstone, are for sale here. In the gallery the animated sculptures of De Houwer are on display.


“Sculpting your own work of art which exceeds your expectations, at an inspiring location near the Wadden coast. Learning the sculpting techniques by practice. Trusting your newly acquired knowledge of the universal language of form. Finding your creative source and drawing inspiration from it. Allowing your intuition and spirituality to guide you. Visualizing your own story. Going home feeling content and proud of your sculpture.”

Participants of our sculpting workshop have rated our approach with a 9.6!
