A Wichtelmann is a little goblin, elf, imp or gnome who live in the woods and forests on the continent from Scandinavia to southern Germany. In Germany they are known as Wichtelmann and are very mischievous scamps. They will play jokes on you but will sometimes bring you little gifts or indeed steal things too!! The folklore is different in each country as is the name of the little fellows. In Scandinavia they are known as Nisse and are mainly associated with the winter solstice and Christmas season.
A workshop to create your own Wichtelmann will be led by Area Teacher Chris Pearce. The tutorial on Tuesday 30th November at 10.30am will involve a demonstration of the design(s). Participants will be supplied with a materials worksheet.
Following the tutorial participants should prepare their own version of the design(s), then take photos, possibly including various stages, or from different angles, or with different plant material. Email the photos at least 2 days before the review session to firstname.lastname@example.org including your name and ‘Wichtelmann Workshop‘ as the subject in the email. The photos will be loaded into an appropriate album in BB&O Photos.
At the review on Monday 6th December at 10.30am the tutor will give appraisals and lead discussion about the submitted designs.
The Zoom link will be emailed 2 days before each event to those who have booked. If you do not receive it please email email@example.com.
If you wish, you can come to the tutorial and/or review as an observer.
