Wednesday workshops for WIELS Kets aged 7 to 12

Every Wednesday (except during school holidays), WIELS organises an experimental laboratory under the tanks of the brewing room. Budding artists will have the opportunity to do research: testing the resistance of materials, printing with light, doing scientific, socio-artistic experiments, find new uses for tools ... The techniques used are varied, ranging from photography, to painting, to video and to performance. Expect to test, try, seek, improvise, make mistakes… and start over!

Using their creativity, the WIELS Kets are also invited to guide other children and adults through exhibitions at events.

Seeing differently, doing differently, becoming the creators of the world of tomorrow and sharing your experience with joy: quite a program!

Katherine Longly (FR), Naomi Laermans (NL) and Laure Goemans (FR / NL) cheerfully embark on this multilingual artistic adventure, led by twelve children invited to appropriate WIELS from the basement to the panorama!

Every Wednesday from 14:00 to 17:00 + Place à l’enfance (October 17, 2020) and Kunstendag voor kinderen (November 15, 2020)
