Berlin: Create Your Own Spin Painting at Jans Echternacht

5. Berlin: Create Your Own Spin Painting at Jans Echternacht

Take a break from browsing Mauerpark's many booths and design and create your own spin art in a private session at Jans Echternacht. Create a piece on your own or work with friends to develop a spin art masterpiece as a reminder of your time in Berlin. Begin with a blank circular canvas stretched out to 80 centimeters. With the help of an instructor, start the spin art machine. Use a different color to create unique motives and color combinations. Every so often, stop the spinning to check how your work is progressing. Once you've decided your next move, start the spin machine up again. After a few rounds of spinning, your work is complete. Leave the work with your instructor for a day to let it fully dry, and return the next day to pick it up. For ease of travel, add on a 5 EUR roll to keep your artwork safe on the plane. If you want to create one work of art with several people, you only need to pay for one piece. If each member of your group prefers to create their own work, book for as many works as you like.

The tour with Katrin was very good and informative. We learned interesting things that weren't written on the signs. And all of this was told with great enthusiasm. Thanks for that!

Very hands on experience and our guide was super accommodative. Great time and our guide Sylvain really helped us create our own special piece.

The supervisor was an East German, fled himself and was very well read and could tell the history with many stories.

I can only recommend getting to know Berlin by bike... the guide was great....

We had great fun and will definitely come here again!
