My paper hut

Model-making workshop.

A hut is a place to take refuge. It reflects the dreams of its inhabitants. Time is often altered. A light habitat.

During this workshop, participants will gather materials in a forest and integrate them into the construction of a model hut. This workshop will be an opportunity to think about your own refuge, and to incorporate eccentric ideas into models. Together, everyone will be able to imagine a different way of living. In the end, these huts will form a large collective worksite.

I live in the city, with its frenetic pace, dizzying towers and deep-rooted scenery. Sometimes I'd like to take refuge in a hut made of my own hands and dreams.

Animateurs : Louise et Valeria.

Louise has a degree in Art and Space Design and is passionate about the printed image, particularly the technique of lithography. She is finishing her diploma for higher secondary education at the ESA Saint-Luc in Brussels, because the desire to teach and to transmit has been with her for a long time. Louise loves to share her taste for artistic techniques: lithography, silk-screening, engraving, costume design, video editing, and a whole range of manual activities with children!

Valeria live in Brussels after leaving the mountains of southern Italy, where she grew up in an extended and turbulent family. Since she was a child, she has always been enchanted by the symbolic power of stories, she used to read a lot of books (her mother was a librarian) and write stories. At thirteen, "L'enfant racine", her first short story, received a warm welcome from her classmates. Buoyed by this support, and hoping to break out of anonymity, she embarked on a career as a writer. She left a few feathers behind, but was not discouraged and set off to explore the far north, first in Bologna and then in Brussels. Here, she discovered herself to be an illustrator, and through a thoughtful blend of drawing, lithography and engraving, integrated images into her stories.
