Sculpting is passionately turning creativity into a work of art.

Find out which sculpture you will release from the stone.

All year, De Houwer organizes sculpting workshops and courses in Groningen.

You can count on the professional guidance of sculptor Hans Nipshagen.


What can you expect?

Our experience has shown that making a complete sculpture in serpentine takes five working days. During the workshops (offered between 10.00 and 12.00 and between 13.00 and 16.00) you will learn the technique of sculpting. You will also become aware of the language of form, which you can apply to your own sculpture.

The most important goal will be to discover, together with the sculptor, the source of your creativity.

Your workplace and environment

In case of bad weather you can work comfortably and leisurely in the studio. When the Groningen weather allows for it, you can choose your own spot in the inspiring sculpture garden.

Sculpting center De Houwer is located on an acre of field directly adjacent to a forest and swimming, fishing and boating water.

At a walking distance you will find the Dollard beach. The rich culture and nature of the Oldambt area and the Graanrepubliek (“Grain Republic”) are within reach.

Does this inspire you to stay in the area for multiple days? Explore the possibility of spending the night at camping dell’Arte.
