Weekly activities, workshops and classes

Sa Taronja is offering a variety of courses this summer, given by members of the Association.

The most unusual offering this summer is a workshop to create an AEOLIAN HARP, during the weekend of 5-6 September. The cost of 150.00 for the two day, 8 hour workshop includes all materials, an illustrated lecture on the history of the Aeolian Harp, and instruction by luthier Fernando Rubin. Each participant will go home with a working instrument to fit into a window.
Please reserve places.

Basketmaker Gisela Leupoldt is proposing a three-day workshop, an introduction to BASKETRY, probably the oldest craft in the world. In this introductory course which takes place on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, participants will learn about different basketweaving techniques, soaking and preparing the materials, and will each complete a project. Cost is 120 € for the 15 hour workshop, including materials. Dates to be confirmed based on number of students.

Juul Jacobs, a Dutch artist who works in resins, is offering workshops at Sa Taronja for artists interested in exploring the sculptural possibilities of plastics, polyester, polyurethane and epoxy resins. A unique opportunity for hands-on experience. Courses can be arranged on weekdays or at weekends

- KATIE STEVENS offers DOAIST EXERCISES FOR HEALTH & LONGEVITY, plus head and facial exercises entitled RESTORING THE LOOK OF YOUTH. This Chinese method, from the Huashan Mountains School, is based on stimulation of the Xiadan, the internal reproductive system; the resulting increase in the secretion of sex hormones is said to influence the healthy function of all the body's organs. When it comes to staying young, this make sense! (Note: These guys were monks.)
Mondays, 12:00 - 13:00h FREE to members, 5 euros for non-members (& the proceeds go to Sa Taronja).

A methodological synthesis of the dialogue between the Cos-Art method and Contemporary Dance, which shows us how to inhabit our bodies sensitively and consciously, producing movement in a way that is personal and free of stereotypes. It gives us freedom of movement and at the same time provides a guide to internal and spatial pathways.
