Walk-in Workshop Still Life
Every Sunday Foam offers free walk-in workshops inspired by the exhibition Scheltens & Abbenes – ZEEN.

During this workshop, you will create your own photo, inspired by the artist duo Scheltens & Abbenes and the way they create their iconic photographs. You are encouraged to carefully look at the material, fabric and patterns of the objects provided by Foam and be inspired to create an iconic pattern composition of your own. Whilst making the photograph, you will need to consider photographic aspects such as colour, framing and cropping. Your best image will be printed to take home.

The walk-in workshops at Foam Studios are suitable for all ages and are made possible by our corporate partner Olympus. Foam provides Olympus cameras for this workshop.

In the spring of 2019, Foam will present the largest museum solo exhibition of the artist duo Scheltens & Abbenes so far. The duo is seen as the most progressive still-life photographers in the Netherlands today. Maurice Scheltens (1972) and Liesbeth Abbenes (1970) have managed to build an international artistic practice at the intersection of commissioned and autonomous photography.
