The following photo example shows the theme of the base, on which the workshop was designed:
„Post-Apocalypse“, Nature Wins Back


What happens at the course?
Every participant builds his or her own base on basis of the main focus mentioned above. The base
will be constructed, painted and greened. Materials for the base construction will be provided
completely for every participant.
It's the objective of this weekend workshop to give extensive knowledge of applicable design
possibilities under inclusion of theories of aesthetic composition. From the fusion of theoretical
knowledge and practical application originates a package, that will go constantly with the
participant after the class and will train his or her senses for harmony and composition as well as for
naturalness on a base. Romans main focus during the workshop is on the support for the
participants, he will not build his own base. This workshop is addressed to advanced miniature
painters, who want to develop a better understanding of the composition of beautiful display bases
(exhibition bases).

Important: This Massive Voodoo course will never go on tour, that means, it will take place every
time only in Augsburg. The reason for this is a didactic phase on Friday evening, during which
“life-size bases” are built, and accordingly a lot of materials are needed. The workshop will take
place only once or at most twice a year, every time in Augsburg. This summer (2014), two dates are
available, this one in August and another one mid to late September. For the workshop planned for
2015 the theme of the base will change.

8. Information on Board and Lodging:

Here it's: Everybody cares for him- or herself. Whether Youth Hostel, Hotel or overnight stay at
local persons, you'll have to manage on your own. Maybe you can make an arrangement with other
participants of the class.

The Youth Hostel Slepscan be recommended, for it is less than two minutes by foot away from the
"Staatsinstitut". To stay there overnight, you need a Youth Hostel pass, which can be made out
directly on site at the Youth Hostel. It's € 3,50 in the summertime for persons under 27 years and €
10,50 for those 27 years or older. You can call the Youth Hostel and will be well advised. There are
also multi-bed rooms and guesthouses available. Augsburg also has a lot of pensions and hotels. We
expect every participant to care for his or her accommodation autonomously.

Your are responsible for your food. In close proximity are several bakeries, to supermarkets
(Tengelmann and Norma), a bank (Sparkasse), snack bars (turkish), some butcheries etc. According
to our usual practice we will plan our breaks together at the workshop. Inside the building, where
the workshop takes place, there is a coffee brewer, a dishwasher, a fridge and an oven we can use.
Bring so money with you for your food etc.
