What is included
Each of the 2018 summer workshops offers a unique and practical learning experience. There is a great diversity, ranging from architecture to ceramics, from lighting to food design. But despite these differences, all workshops offer a life-changing experience which includes:
Participants are accommodated in the Dépendance, a 19th century building which now is our guesthouse. All rooms have their own washrooms (WC/shower) and are furnished with comfortable period furniture.
2. Mediterranean cuisine
Food is an essential part of Boisbuchet. You will enjoy delicious, organic, creative and healthy Mediterranean food. We care for special diets and we grow our own vegetables in the garden!
3. Tuition, materials & tools
All the tools and materials are available on location, and our skilled technicians will help you with all your projects.
4. Guided architecture tour in the Domaine
In the context of our workshop programme, internationally renowned architects have constructed a series of buildings over the past years that present a fascinating contrast to Boisbuchet’s traditional buildings. They are practical examples of alternative materials and construction methods, sustainability and a harmonious interplay with nature, landscape and architecture.
5. Fun & entertainment
We make weekly campfires to receive participants and meet each other. You will also discover "Porky's", our famous costume party in the castle’s “dungeon"
6. A place to breathe free
Boisbuchet is a perfect place to simply relax and reflect. There are yoga sessions in the morning for those who are interested, and you will find many inspiring places to read, to draw, to create, or just to rest peacefully.
7. Leisure activities
Swimming in the lake, long walks, canoe-tours, table-tennis, soccer... exercising in the healthy countryside atmosphere is the best way to whet your appetite!
8. Season exhibition and tutor's presentations
Each week we will have several inspiring conferences where tutors will present their work for all the participants. Every season we also prepare an exhibition in the Château with some of the most interesting objects from Alexander von Vegesack's collection.
9. Learning from the best tutors
You will spend one whole week working with some of the best experts in their respective fields. Every single workshop is a unique hands-on experience, with the guarantee of learning by doing.
