Berlin: Create Your Own Spin Painting at Jans Echternacht

9. Berlin: Create Your Own Spin Painting at Jans Echternacht

Take a break from browsing Mauerpark's many booths and design and create your own spin art in a private session at Jans Echternacht. Create a piece on your own or work with friends to develop a spin art masterpiece as a reminder of your time in Berlin. Begin with a blank circular canvas stretched out to 80 centimeters. With the help of an instructor, start the spin art machine. Use a different color to create unique motives and color combinations. Every so often, stop the spinning to check how your work is progressing. Once you've decided your next move, start the spin machine up again. After a few rounds of spinning, your work is complete. Leave the work with your instructor for a day to let it fully dry, and return the next day to pick it up. For ease of travel, add on a 5 EUR roll to keep your artwork safe on the plane. If you want to create one work of art with several people, you only need to pay for one piece. If each member of your group prefers to create their own work, book for as many works as you like.

What an excellent experience. I went with my 13 year old son and the whole thing went very smooth, Sylvain communicated and organised it perfectly, and even though the weather was freezing, we both had a great time. Sylvain guided us to create a piece of graffiti that we were delighted with, he explained the process, gave us advice and we both felt we learned a great deal. The location was great, it did not feel fake or setup - we were literally making graffiti properly with someone who clearly has lots of experience. I could not recommend this more for anyone interested in graffiti, or just wanting an authentic experience that is different to the normal boring tourist stuff. Thanks so much!!!

kindly received by the host, nice studio, clear explanation, very nice experience! laughed a lot with a nice end result. beautiful way of art

Excelente atração para quem tem pouco tempo e precisa de visão global para escolhas particulares.
