I am a qualified teacher and artist and the founder of Connect2Gozo experiences which bring you closer to the island and nature of Gozo.
I was born in Austria and moved to Malta when I got married therefore I speak English and German.
After 14 years of teaching in secondary schools in Austria and Malta and lecturing at the Institute of Tourism, I became a self-employed full-time artist and also conduct art-related holiday experiences and workshops such as painting with natural pigments and design and dine with Raku. So if you want to know what to do in Gozo during your stay, join one of my workshops nearby to discover the island and its beautiful nature.
It would be great to get to know, meet, and enjoy being creative with you!

Where you'll be

Within this experience, I will take you to one of the most fertile areas of Gozo. The workshop will take place at my outdoor studio on a typical terraced field with historical rubble walls and a “girna”. On rainy and stormy days we will be working at my studio, a renovated traditional old farmhouse in the center of the village nearby.

Hermine, her husband Simon and her friends were lovely persons. A unique experience, inside the nature of Gozo, you feel like in a friend’s home atmosphere. The Raku method is very funny to do and so impressive to see. The diner was good, the bamboo bread stick so fun to make. My friend and me were so proud to come back with our own plates ! Thanks again :)

Hermine and her husband were great hosts and we enjoyed the unique experience in a wonderful location. My husband came along with my daughter and I, but is not into crafts, but it turns out he loved the whole experience and was very pleased with his handiwork. The outdoor terraces are beautiful but rustic and if someone has severe mobility issues this may not be for them, but for everyone else this multifaceted experience is highly recommended.

Wow, what an amazing evening for me and my 5 friends. I really do not know how to describe the whole event... it was just so unique and wonderful. We each made a dish that we were so proud to take home. The instruction was clear but not prescriptive and this enabled us to follow Hermine's lead but not just make the same thing. The food, drinks, dog, family, and location were perfect. I really do not know how Hermine managed to create such a unique experience. But I wish I could do more things like this as a travel.

A must for anyone! Met a swiss family there who were proudly making work together for their garden. I have done raku firing before, but this was a unique experience in a beautiful location, we even made our own bread on bamboo sticks on the fire. I could explain more, but you must go and do it yourself....I also came home with a beautiful plated glazed by myself using Hermine's wonderful colours and Simon her husband helped us with the bread making/ cooking etc, not forgetting the yummy dinner and local red wine! Big thank you to Hermine and Simon and thanks for lift home...made my last night on Gozo very special!

What a fabulous evening we had with Hermine in her amazing home with a great artistic vibe. We both thoroughly enjoyed the Raku experience, the lovely food & wine, with the thunder and lightening an added extra. We're now proud owners of a pair of wonderful Raku plates.
