Gallery with original art painting & graphics - Workshop with historical letterpress for the production of woodcuts - Demonstration of woodblock printing technique (original color woodblock prints from up to 12 woodblocks)
HAUS HOPPE - Atelier für Bildende Kunst is a byword for art and hospitality beyond the borders of the country. A gallery with admirable paintings and precious woodcuts awaits you in a 250 year old farmhouse. In addition, in the artist's workshop, you will learn the craft of woodblock printing. This technique, practiced since the Middle Ages, explained on a letterpress, never ceases to amaze and delight the attentive visitor. This ambience is rounded off by a newly planted rose garden, where you can find peace and relaxation, according to the seasons.
"...The painter and graphic artist Olaf Hoppe, born in Rostock in 1959, is one of the best wood engravers in Germany..." (Quote: ARTES® - The International Art House 2003)
