Studio ready!!


After 3 years of hard work we finished the studio/café/shop/exhibition room/storage straw bale project!!

You can imagine how happy I am! I am sorting all material now (this is a hard job too!) so that everything has a place and I can find it!!! After living 20 years in a 3 storey building and having the material scattered all over the place I'm in heaven now!!

If you want to see all 58 pictures you can go here

Now everybody is invited to use this studio. I'm offering classes in summer 2007 and I have also the possibility to offer a place for an artist in residence. You can also come for a week or two, alone or with friends (I have 2 double rooms), and work on your projects (with or without supervision) and enjoy the wonderful landscape of the "Mostviertel".

Even if it doesn't look like it, I want to keep it simple and don't have too much of a show here... It must be a place to work, rest, get inspired and enjoy... I want to have the possibility to work more than giving one class after the other, but I enjoy having fellow artists around me doing their thing. I find having contact with other artists is good for winning new perspectives.

Feel free to ask!...

  19. liebe monika,
    deine website ist ganz toll! ich mag sehr gerne dein stil, die farben und die kompositionen.
    meine workshops sind momentan nach bedarf. man kann bei mir ein wochenende oder eine woche verbringen, das studio nutzen und ich zeige gerne die verschiedenen techniken, die ich verwende. ich habe auch eine grosse bibliothek mit fachliteratur zum schmöckern.
    man braucht sich nur rechtzeitig anmelden. für direkte anfragen meine emailadresse ist saralechner@gmx.at

  20. SARA! Incredible, I don't think I have seen a studio/teaching space yet created with so much love and passion! I just adore that you have a cafe!!! oh what a dream. Did you make that amazing mermaid quilt hanging there? And a shop, are the dolls yours or a combination of artists? And walls and walls of storage, if only my garage could look half as organized! LOL... So now the big question is what classes will you be teaching and will you let others teach there as well? I would love to be on your mailing list. I am just speechless....
