MAKit! Workshop for Adults
Flowers to Wear: Head
with the artist Alma Bektas

Under the theme “Flowers to Wear,” workshop participants, under the artistic direction of Alma Bektas, design wearable flower pieces at various dates. Each of the three workshops focuses on a different body part, for which a piece is produced—from rings to necklaces to headpieces. Fresh and artificial flowers, along with various materials, are combined to create what are known as “wearables,” including accessories, jewelry, or small items of clothing. The workshop takes place in the park of Geymüllerschlössel in good weather and is relocated to MAK on Stubenring in case of rain. Participants will be informed of the location three days before each respective date via email.

From 12 noon
Culinary happening with Oberwasser Fisch
The Oberwasser fish farm is located in the heart of the Lower Austrian Prealps on the upper reaches of the Schwarza, characterized by the beauty of nature. In the midst of this breathtaking landscape of the Natura2000 nature reserve, Oberwasserfisch finds the perfect living conditions for its trout and char. Animal welfare, quality and sustainability are the top priorities.
In the castle garden there are salmon trout skewers from the Japanese Konro Grill (in 2 variations: lime, coriander, mint or spicy mayo), accompanied by refreshing drinks.

Cash payment only!
