Workshops for children

All workshops can be held either on site or in the studio of Artistania Atelier e.V. in Neckarstrasse 19, 12053 Berlin. Other locations are possible by arrangement. 

Puppet building-Workshops


In these workshops, the children o are invited to create unique dolls and marionettes. Whether large or small, young or old, beautiful or ugly: we organize the workshop according to the wishes of the children. Cooperation and mutual listening are the main focus of the creation process.

We invent characters and experiment with unusual materials. With clay, glue, paint, paper, etc., the children can let their imagination run free, while at the same time exercise their ability to concentrate without constraint. Creation, games and discovery are united in one activity. In addition, this workshop will provide the opportunity to explore the physiognomy and the movements of people more closely.

Objecttheatre and acting-Workshops


In this workshop we develop a small show that can be presented in front of the families or a larger audience. This first experience with the stage allows for the children to recognize both their place in the group and to strengthen their self-confidence. Theater plays also help stimulate co-operation, courage, trust and observation of the children.

Mask building -Workshop


The mask allows the children to play with their own identity and to transform their own appearance. Transforming into an animal is extremely exciting for children, and if their own handmade mask can be worn, the children are not only happy, they are also proud to have made something from their own imagination. We also learn to mimic and identify physiognomy in this process(i.e. How do we recognize astonishment, fatigue, etc.?).

Groups: 3 to 12 children

Workshop: Construction of a mask
Duration: 8 hours (4 x 2 hours)
