This year the courses 'Creative Embroidery: Personalize your clothes' and 'Engraving for beginners' are released


This Monday, June 7, the registration period for the courses and workshops that the Youth House has scheduled for the summer of 2021 opens. In total, 128 places are offered, divided between six courses and four free computer workshops for young people from 14 to 30 years. All the activities will take place in the afternoons of the month of August.

In this summer edition, and given the health safety regulations, the number of places has been reduced both in the courses and in the workshops, adapting them to the permitted capacity. The rooms and activities will always be adapted to the requirements established by law at all times. The price of the courses varies, from 10.80 to 26.40 euros, depending on the number of hours planned for the activity and, also, on the age of the person who enrolls. Minors, from 14 to 18 years old, have a special price.

To sign up for any of these initiatives, you must go with your ID, until July 30, to the Youth House (30 Sangüesa Street), the Pamplona City Council has reported.

The offer of courses for this summer includes the classic 'Medicinal plants of the station', in whose development there will be outings around Pamplona and also theoretical-practical sessions of 'Photography'; 'Theatre', a course in which there will be exercises on voice techniques, improvisation and creativity, and 'Open-air drying ceramics' (in Basque).

This 2021 also offers two contents that premiere in the programming of the Youth House: 'Creative Embroidery: Personalize your clothes' and 'Engraving for beginners'. All the courses have different development schedules from Monday to Thursday, between 6 and 8:50 p.m., always during the month of August.

La Casa de la Juventud ofrecerá seis cursos y cuatro talleres gratuitos durante el verano

Added to this proposal is four free computer workshops, with 12 seats each, which will be taught in the Ciberaula: 'Basic programming with Python I and II' (with VSCode editor), 'Basic fixes for your PC', and 'Learn to create web pages' (HTML/CSS3). All workshops will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays in August, from 7:00 to 8:50 p.m.

These contents will be in charge of José Antonio Vidaurre, specialist in trees, medicinal plants and aromatherapy; Mikel Tolosana, graduate in telecommunications and computer systems and camera operator; Fermín Cariñena, actor and director; Leyre Monge, student of 'Fashion Design' at the School of Design of La Rioja and Garazi Valluerca, graduate in Fine Arts from the University of Bilbao. The computer workshops will be offered by Iñaki Irujo, the person in charge of the Casa's Ciberaula.


Leyre Monge, student of 'Fashion Design' at the Escuela Superior de Diseño de la Rioja will offer on Tuesdays and Thursdays in August, from 3 to 26, the course 'Creative Embroidery: Personalize your clothes'. During the 16 hours of development, she will teach from scratch the different embroidery techniques with which clothes can be personalized. It will begin with the basic stitches to go, little by little, delving into more complex tasks, so that those who attend can end up personalizing their clothes, giving a second life to garments that have already been in the closet for a while.

For her part, Garazi Valluerca, a graduate in Fine Arts from the University of Bilbao with an ERASMUS in Venice, will give a 12-hour 'Engraving Workshop for Beginners', on Mondays and Wednesdays in August, from 7 to 8:50 p.m. Respect for the environment will also be important in this content since homemade, natural techniques and with recycling elements will be used to develop engravings and different prints. Among the different methods, those of stamping with vegetables and fruits stand out; the creation of personal stamps through patterns of homemade objects; that of linography (an artistic technique whose matrix plate, from which the image is obtained, is made of linoleum, although wood can also be used and covered by material from linseed oil); xylography (or wood engraving); the drypoint technique; or the transfer (which allows recording on a photographic basis).
