Selecting a new hobby

By Maria Gregoriou

After telling you all about the workshops and courses that the Home for Cooperation will be offering this season on Mondays and Tuesdays, let’s jump right into some selections from the rest of the week.

As of Wednesday – if you like film – you can participate in a film workshop with Christina Hadjizachariou.

Hadjizachariou, who studied film at the University of Montpellier and at the French National Film School FEMIS in Paris, will take you through every stage of the creative process, from script-writing to shooting and editing, the film-maker has to make choices related to the point of view which will determine the quality of the viewer’s relation to the film through the identification process.

You will get to watch many cinema masterpieces and develop critical thinking while having discussions after a screening.

Staying on the artsy side of things, as of Thursday the house will be offering free arts sculpture, printing, engraving and monotype workshop.

The workshop, which will be run by Mathieu Devavry and Stavros Stavrou, will give all participants the chance to apply different techniques on paper, printing on fabric and t-shirts.

Those who will get to know about the world of art will get to know their own creativity and imagination better.

There is also art for kids on Saturdays with the workshop entitled Artsy Fartsy.

Instructor Naz Atun and Annabelle Megalemos, will encourage children to express their ideas and inner visions through art.

The last pick of the week is the photography workshop by Athos Florides.

Florides will give beginners and intermediate photographers a better understanding of photography.
Participants will be introduced to the basic technology necessary for the production of their photographic work, how to look at and critique photography, photographic vocabulary, and how to use certain tools to do with photography.
