A house with character in the heart of Småland, Sweden, a puppeteer / puppet maker / danceteacher, and a wonderfull surrounding of culture and nature.
I am Anja, I'm Dutch but living in Sweden for nine years. Living in this fine old house in Boda Glasbruk, i am working with puppetry and dance, enjoying surrounding nature.
I am an openminded, mature, hospitable woman with a need for play and creativity, joy and humor.
I would need some handy hands to help fixing things in and around the house. (See the list of tasks and crafts below.)
In return you can enjoy biking or wandering in the surrounding area, paddling on the lakes, or if you want try on puppetry. There is room for free or guided dancesessions.
In language practice I can offer Dutch, English and Swedish
DIY and building projects
Help around the house
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
As already mentioned, this is the Christal Kingdom, with many glassworking places in different ways; some as handcraft, some as art- and design center. So for those who are interested, there is a lot to see in that way.
I offer the use of bikes and kayaks two of each, So you can fill your free time ejoying nature in the area.
For those who want to chalange their creativity, i offer the possability to work with puppetry, both making and playing. As I am danceteacher/therapist, I offer room for dancesessions, both as freedance and guided dance, widening your movement vocabulary and creativity. We could agree to some form of course in a chosen theme.
Right now I need some help with a project to make film for a puppetry performance.
Otherways I would like help with gardening, such as cutting grass, ev. treas, cleaning from weads and planting.
There is some painting to do at the house (outside and inside), repairing inside and outise, carpenting. In the basement some walls need spackling and painting.
The house is built in wood, but is spackled on the outside.
