1.Detailed Stencil Workshop With Daniel Eime

Daniel has been creating large scale murals since years in Portugal using very precise stencil techniques. His stencils are made by cutting a pattern out of card, plastic or metal. It is used to recreate the cut design on the surface below by the application of paint through the holes. What’s so exceptional about it is his sense of detail and his ability to put together small pieces into one big stunning artwork.

He also loves to teach his art and therefore organizes workshops and team building activities. Together with him, the participants have the opportunity to learn about a new technique and create a mural from the beginning to the end. This involves designing, cutting out the design on the stencil and applying it with paint to the wall.

Working together on a very detailed artwork requires real team efforts and a good communication between participants. It encourages them to work together towards a common goal and the result is incredible.
