VAWAA is a mini-apprenticeship with a curated master artist or craftsman in cities around the world and I became one of them.
Why should you go on a VAWAA?
Each VAWAA is an opportunity to explore, learn, and create. Go on a VAWAA to take a digital detox and reconnect with the physical world. Discover a new destination and create real local connections. Spend time inside my studio making something with your hands. Learn a new creative skill. You can use a VAWAA to reconnect with creativity, have an authentic travel experience, hone a passion, get fresh inspiration, and so much more.
And now you have the opportunity to learn poster restoration with me.
If you are interested in restoring posters or graphic art in Prague, home to one of the biggest art nouveau artist and creator of rare posters, Alfons Mucha. I will guide you through the craft of restoring paper and retouching artwork from start to end, so you can enjoy your favorite posters for a long time.
