    Hi Guys :) a little UPDATE for MAI and SUMMER

    We re looking for an art assistent from Mai on. Experience with tools is required. Work includes assitence in exhibitions, restauration of wood sculptures and organisation and implementation of Art events.
    just text us for more information and to get a better picture.

    We re also looking for an skilled and qualified craftsman who can help us with the renovation of the farm. Preferential with ariculturial background and interests. There is lots of different jobs to do. Work with wood, electrics and in sanitation.

    Help in the Garden is always needed, too. Leo is looking forward to hear from you.

    My Name is Werner, I`m 47 years old and I work as sculptor. I live on a small farm, in a typical old swiss farmhouse with my interns Lukas & Leo, our Iran friend Vahid (18) and at times with my daughter Jana (17).
    This farmhouse is in the region Emmental.
    It's a pretty quiet place, surrounded by nature and some other farmhouses. But its not far from a small town (Langnau) and only 40 km away from Berne. Which is reachable with public Transport.
    On the farm we live with arround 50 sheeps, 5 chicken and 5 cats.
    There is a small house garden, a greenhouse and a big garden which we cultivate with some other friends.
    You would help on the farm, in the garden, with the renovation of the house and in artprojects.
    4-5 hours a day, for accommodation and food.
    There is also an atelier which you could use to be creative (painting, carving, sculpture).
    It`s also interesting for a couple because we have a separate studio .
    We are looking forward to get to know many interesting people.
