Prepare your old T-shirts, skirts, sheets, scarves and bags! Two years ago you could meet Juli, Zsuzsi and „Alma” Regina at the information desk, but this year they invite you to do some fabric dyeing. Alongside the traditional knotting method, they’ll show you a Japanese shibori tie-dye stitching technique as well, but they are open to do any experiment. A limited number of fabrics will be provided, so the girls encourage everyone to bring their own clothes/accessories made of natural materials.

vegan gastronomy workshop
In vegan cooking no ingredients of animal origin are used, the result is always something delicious and fantastic, though. During this workshop you’ll not only learn how to cook vegan, but learn about the philosophy of this style and the healthy effects of vegan food. The tutors will be Diana Harcsa, Anikó Váradi and Ágota Papp.
„Since I was a kid, I’ve always loved cooking“ – says Ágota, who studied gastronomy. Having milk and albumen intolerance, she started to look for alternative recipes that she could change and improve, and of course later she started to come up with her own recipes. Her gastro-philosophy is: healthy, seasonal & local food (rare exceptions: Mexican & Asian food).
„I found peace within myself, by the love of food and the art of cooking.” To be healthy and to know where you come from and where you go, this is what the harmony found in vegan cuisine means to Anikó. She sees every single dish she makes as a piece of artwork.
