Visiting rules

We are open every day from 12:00 to 20:00.

Please note: Some Workshop events require an appointment. Please enquire about the schedule in advance.

The Forest always welcomes you.

We take care of each other.

We resolve conflicts with words.

We respect each others' personal space.

We are good at sharing and giving.

Please do not bring food or drinks into the Atelier. Drinking water is available in the Forest; ask the facilitators for cups.

The facilitator may ask you to leave the Atelier if you break the rules. Atelier staff are not responsible for visitors' failure to follow the rules and safety procedures or for visitors’ health.

Workshop (6+)

Visitors over the age of 6 are welcome (with accompanying adults only).

Adult visitors are responsible for their own health and safety, as well as for the health and safety of their children.

When you enter a Workshop, we ask that you fill out a mandatory visitor consent form. Please be prepared to read the extended version of the rules carefully; we can help you explain them to your child.

The Forest (0+)

Visitors of all ages are welcome.

Children over the age of 7 may be left in the Forest supervised by a facilitator. A facilitator can supervise no more than 2 children at a time.

Please respect this rule: It is essential for the safety of the children and to ensure they get the facilitator's full attention. 

Parents may not leave their children for more than 1 hour and must agree to be available to return to the Atelier at the request of the facilitator.

When you enter the Forest, we ask that you take off your street shoes to keep the space clean. Please bring a change of shoes or socks with you.

Workshop formats

Unstructured visits

Visiting families decide what they want to do in the Atelier on their own. Our staff will offer suggestions and set up inventive situations for children to respond to creatively. This format also encourages interaction and collaboration between children and adults.

Pre-registration: Not required
When: Mon- Sun.

Work with guest masters

In the first season of GES-2, the Atelier will host four guest craftsmen – experts in working with clay, fabrics, paper, and wood. They will help young visitors learn to use complex equipment such as an electric jigsaw, an etching machine, a sewing machine, and a potter's wheel.

This is a great option for children who want to learn something new and acquire practical skills.

Pre-registration: Not required
When: Fri, Sat, Sun from 12:00 – 17:00.
Hour-long sessions for mini groups, running from 12:00 to 17:00
(Visitors can remain for successive sessions if they wish).

Workshops with artists

Two times a monthly we invite contemporary artists to invent journey scenarios involving several workshop zones and using a variety of materials.

In the course of these workshops, children develop their visual imagination to complete a small art project.

When: Every second Sunday of the month.
Each workshop runs twice, so if you miss the first one you can always attend the next one.

Pre-registration: Required, with a limited number of participants.
Registration opens in October.
