According to the most recent safety protocol for culture our courses can continue. We are very relieved about that, but we also don't want to turn a blind eye to the high infection rates.
In addition, these guidelines will remain in place:
In the meantime, you can without hesitation register for the new spring courses: our money-back guarantee remains valid in case of cancellation due to corona.
Our course offer contains three different formats:
You recognize them by looking at the location. Live courses have a real address of the course location, online courses have the location "from home" and blended courses have the location "blended Antwerpen", "blended Leuven" or "blended Gent".
No. An ONLINE course will be held online even if the measures allow live meetings. And a LIVE course that can't take place because of the measures will be cancelled.
The course environment of BLENDED courses is flexible, meaning the sessions can consist of various online and offline formats. Those formats will be partly determined by the corona measures, but also by our curiosity and enthusiasm to teach you in new, alternative ways. This means that a blended course does not necessarily consist of only live sessions once the measures allow live gatherings!
At least three days before the start, we will send you an e-mail with everything you need to know about the start of your course. In case your course is cancelled (because of corona or because of an insufficient number of participants), we will let you know at least 3 working days in advance as well.
Yes, our money-back-guarantee still applies: if your course is (partly) cancelled because of corona, you will automatically receive a refund of the cancelled sessions in your bank account.
ONLINE and BLENDED courses are designed to take place no matter the corona measures at that time - provided there are enough participants.
In this case, our usual terms and conditions apply.
Several times a year we launch new courses on this website.
Please note: the exact launch dates may differ from the times below by a few days. Subscribing to our newsletter is the best way to stay informed, you will automatically receive an email each time new courses are available!
Most of our courses take place in Antwerp, Ghent and Leuven. In the summer we also go to other places in Belgium and abroad. The LUX-courses with overnight stay take place in Dworp. You can click to visit the pages of our regular course locations below.
Please note that not all courses are held here! Make sure to always check which address(es) are listed on your course page.
We do not offer free try-out lessons. However, there are regular short course formulas where you can discover in an accessible way whether it is something for you, such as a free kickstart at the start of a season.
Sure! As long as the course is not full yet, you can register up until the day the course starts.
Please note that for registrations within 14 days before the start of the course, we expect you to make your payment immediately.
Need a little help while registering for your course? Please follow the steps below.

After logging in, you will see your participation in the course in your shopping cart. You can now do three things:
The participants in your shopping cart are not registered until you choose your payment option. Would you like to do us a favor? Then choose to pay online as much as possible. Thank you!
The participants in your shopping cart are now registered! You will also receive a confirmation email from us (be sure to check your spam folder). If you chose to pay by bank transfer, please remember to make your payment within 7 days.
If you are still having trouble registering, contact us to get your registration in order.
When registering online for a WISPER course, you can choose yourself which price applies to you.
Do you have other questions about payment? Do you wish to pay in installments? Contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we will work out a solution together!
When paying for your course, you have the choice between paying online (via Bancontact or your Belgian bank) or paying by bank transfer.
If you chose the bank transfer, don't forget to pay within 7 days after signing up. If you do not pay in time, we can no longer guarantee your participation. You can always find your payment details in your WISPER account.
Is there a reason why you can't pay in time or would you like to pay in installments?
Contact email@example.com and we will work out a solution.
When a course is full, there are no subscribe buttons next to the prices, but there are buttons that allow you to put yourself on the waiting list.
Go to the page of the course for which you want to be on the waiting list and click or scroll to the prices.
Click on the waiting list button next to your chosen price.
Already have an account? Log in with your e-mail address and password.
Courses for which you are on the waiting list will stay in your shopping cart until they start. You don't have to confirm or pay anything at this point.
We will contact you by email and/or phone as soon as a place is available.
Please remove the course from your shopping cart so that we can contact the right person when a spot in the course opens up!
With an account, you no longer have to enter all your information every time you sign up. Just log in with your e-mail address and password. That's a lot easier for you and for us!
Do you want to know why we ask you for certain information when creating an account? And how we save and protect that information? You can read this in our privacy statement.
Don't want to or can't create an account but very much want to register for a course? No problem: e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
Log in to your personal WISPER account and go to "My Courses" in the top menu. Click on the title to go to the course page: there you will find all the info about the location, times, supplies etc.
These course pages remain available until the last session of the course.
A few days before the start of your course, you will receive a reminder e-mail from us with all the practical information.
You will be insured for incidents and civil liabilities during all course activities led by a WISPER employee. You will not be insured by WISPER for the traveling part from and towards the course, neither for the outdoor activities organized by the course participants themselves.
Cancelling a registration before the course has started is possible but you should keep some terms and conditions in mind.
If you decide to leave a course after it has started you will not get a refund. A (partial) refund for one or more classes that you missed because of illness is not possible.
The only exception is if you have to stop the course completely because of medical reasons. You will need to hand in a doctor’s note which can verify that you’re unable to continue with the course. In this case you’ll only have to pay for the classes you’ve already attended.
If you can present a doctor's certificate in advance for the entire duration of the course, the course fee will be refunded minus an administration fee of € 30.
Want to cancel but do you feel like your situation is not (quite) covered by these conditions? Contact us and we will work out a solution together!
WISPER reserves the right to cancel a course if there aren’t enough registrations or if the teacher falls ill or cannot teach due to unforeseen circumstances. In this case your registration fee will be fully refunded. We do not however offer any additional compensation.
You take a WISPER course in your free time, so we fully understand busy schedules and unforeseen circumstances. On the other hand, learning an art requires commitment.
You learn by doing, by developing step by step and by committing yourself during a course to the content and to your fellow participants. That is what WISPER stands for. So if you ask us: we would love for you to come every time. You will not only be doing a favor to the group and the instructor, but also to yourself.
An unexpected absence is not the end of the world, but the more sessions you miss, the more your own learning process (and that of your fellow students) will suffer. So if you know in advance that you will have to miss one or more sessions of a series or weekend, we ask you to make this consideration in good conscience before you register. We cannot do that for you.
Please note that LUX courses and courses working towards a production ask for more engagement: these courses are programmed in a way that we need all participants to be present each session, without exception.
