What you'll do

PAINTING WITH NATURAL PIGMENTS
In this approx 3 hour experience nearby, you get to know Gozitan’s color pigments, its properties, and how to use them in a hands-on activity. At the same time, you connect to Gozo and its nature in an unusual way.
During a small walk through Gozo's nature, you collect different pigments from soil, flowers, and fruits. I will show you how to mix your collected natural pigments to paints and then you can express your holiday impressions with them.
An unforgettable experience with a truly Gozitan memory to take home.
Other things to note
You will need good shoes and comfortable cloth which may get dirty. We will be walking in rough trails and climb steps. A friendly dog will accompany us on this experience

I am a qualified teacher and artist and the founder of Connect2Gozo experiences which bring you closer to the island and nature of Gozo.
I was born in Austria and moved to Malta when I got married therefore I speak English and German.
After 14 years of teaching in secondary schools in Austria and Malta and lecturing at the Institute of Tourism, I became a self-employed full-time artist and also conduct art-related holiday experiences and workshops such as painting with natural pigments and design and dine with Raku. So if you want to know what to do in Gozo during your stay, join one of my workshops nearby to discover the island and its beautiful nature.
It would be great to get to know, meet, and enjoy being creative with you!

Where you'll be

Within this experience, I will take you to one of the most fertile areas of Gozo. There you have an amazing view of the fruitful valley and the Mediterranean sea. The workshop will take place at my outdoor studio on a typical terraced field with historical rubble walls and a “girna”. On rainy and stormy days we will be working at my studio, a renovated traditional old farmhouse in the center of the village nearby.

We really enjoyed the experience from beginning to end! Hermine is an excellent host and her passion for nature and art shines through constantly. The experience has many parts to it: foraging, processing the forage, painting and lunch. All parts brought something different and interesting to the experience. We learnt a lot and had a lot of fun - recommended!

Das Malen war sehr inspirierend und ich habe viel über das Färben mit natürlichen Pigmenten erfahren. Ein wunderbares Erlebnis. Sehr zu empfehlen.

Mat (in Hermi's absence) created a very special day for us. Welcoming, inclusive, insightful, funny, creative and memorable. A wonderful experience that has enabled us to take some of Gozo back home with us, and that we created individually and together. Hermi's communication and organisation was outstanding and very thoughtful. Arranged for her colleague to guide us for the day in her absence when plans needed to change. I had a lot of fun, not having done sketching or painting since early high school days - very welcoming and inclusive. My grandmother also had a great time, with the support and encouragement provided from Mat very much appreciated

It was an amazing experience! We loved finding different things in nature to make the lots of natural colours of paint. Once we arrived back at Hermine’s garden we sat in the sun and got to experiment using the paint we made. We then painted our own picture on canvas which was good fun. After finishing we ate a delicious home made lunch including eggs from Hermine’s own chickens. The whole experience was made so special by Hermine who really cared about us and welcoming us into her life and teaching us about natural pigments.

If you’re creative, interested in nature, art or food you would love this experience. I personally think Hermine should do longer retreats, because I didn’t want to leave. I felt I learnt a lot and relaxed completely. She’s so creative, her studio is out of this world. Please do this x
