Into the Woods, express course, May 24 – 29, 2015

CIRRUS students engaged in various forms of art, design and architecture are hereby invited to take part in the workshop “Into the Woods”, 24-29 May 2015. The venue for the workshop is the island Kvamsøy, located in Sognefjorden in Western Norway, surrounded by the deep fjord and high mountains. During the workshop participants will be introduced to different approaches for working with wood, and build experimental, spatial structures while at the same time live and work in the woods. The magnificent landscape, the lush nature, the bay, the sky and climate will hopefully be a great source of inspiration and could offer great experiences.
