Where to stay in Utrecht?

Welcome to Utrecht, beautiful city in the heart of the Netherlands!

From several people we got the question if we have any suggestions for places to stay during the Artfusion weekend so here are a few hotels you can check out.

These 2 are the closest to the event. You could walk to the location if you’d like. They are also very close to the railway station.

Park Plaza Utrecht

NH Utrecht

Only a little bit further away but also a bit cheaper is IBIS Utrecht.

If you want to check out more hotels you can go to where you can find a lot of hotels in and around  the center of Utrecht.

Utrecht has lots of fun things to do. You could take a canal tour, see the Dom church, visit the Rietveld-Schröderhaus or the Centraal Museum. There are many fancy restaurants and fun shops to stroll around. Click here to find all things to do in Utrecht. So come and join us and extend your creative day/weekend with some sightseeing!

We Heard You!!

Yes, we did! On our announcement of the Artfusion Event we planned we got a lot of comments about the location. Many of you asked us why we didn’t plan it somewhere in the middle of the Netherlands. It would be easier for you to get there and it would also increase the travel distance/time for a lot of you. Also we heard that April was already so full of events and stuff.
And we agree! So we decided to postpone the event and find a better location. We think we found the perfect place!

Artfusion will now take place June 15-16 in the middle of the lovely city of Utrecht. Being a big railways junction in the Netherlands and only 45 minutes by train from Schiphol airport we think Utrecht is one of the best places we could have chosen.

The facility (Kade Ateliers) is a canal house at the Leidsekade 17, near the center of Utrecht where we have the availability of 2 lovely, light rooms. As we see it, we have all the ingredients for an amazing creative weekend on hand here.

Here are some pictures of the location:

We also made some changes in the workshops. You will find the schedule, the workshops and prices below:


9.30 – 13.00 – Season Canvas Workshop by Nathalie Kalbach

In this Workshop with Nathalie Kalbach, you will create a stunning and unique canvas that will be a wonderful home décor item.

Learn how to create dimension and texture with tissue paper, items of daily life, acrylic paint, lace, burlap, and gesso.

Learn how to reveal the interesting and eye-catching texture with acrylic paints and acrylic inks and add some fun stamping techniques on top.

We will be adding lots of layers and dimension to make this a spring, summer, fall or winter canvas… just as you like. All the techniques can easily be applied to future projects.
