Description

This is a 2 hour workshop aimed at complete beginners or those who have some drawing and painting experience. This class will teach you the practical skills and techniques used in watercolour painting, whether you want to use this medium for illustrative work, typography or fine art painting.

This workshop will focus on creating a single composition of a variety of succulent plants from an aerial or side perspective. With a plethora of examples seen across creative, wellbeing and home magazines and media, get in on the trend and create your own masterpiece to frame and hang on the wall. We will be drawing from both live plants and also sourced photos.  Participants will be introduced to observation skills, drawing and composition methods and watercolour application. This workshop is for any artistic skill level, with all materials supplied.

ABOUT VANESSA WALLACE

Vanessa has always been an ‘arty soul’, growing up in Byron Bay and always dabbling in art and craft. She holds separate tertiary qualifications in Design, Visual Arts and Teaching, and enjoys passing on to others her knowledge and skills.

As a practising ceramic artist for the past 13 years, Vanessa exhibits her work at various galleries in Queensland and New South Wales, her work also part of private collections both national and international. She loves nothing better than pinching porcelain, decorating surfaces and splashing colour.

Inspiration for Vanessa’s work comes from the cultural richness that surrounds her. She weaves her experience of travel, art histories and daily rituals into her artmaking. Creating series of themed ceramic works, Vanessa uses either hand building or slip casting techniques and always strives to leave a trace of the hand on her work.

Vanessa enjoys exploring the possibilities of mixing various materials and processes to create art that is evocative, textural and desirable.

Was a good class. With the right balance of instruction and time to practice. Nice way to wind down at the end of the week.

My sister and I took the Watercolour and Wine Work-Shop with Vanessa and we absolutely loved it. We had such a great night and are now keen on continuing to explore watercolour painting. We found Vanessa’s workshop a lot more informative than other paint and sip classes but the atmosphere was still relaxed and fun. She is a great teacher and so helpful!

Very enjoyable class creating a watercoloured wreath while sipping on some wine with a friend. Loved the space, music, atmosphere and activity. Teacher is very experienced and very down to earth - thank you. The only thing I recommend is perhaps making the class 3 hours rather than 2 hours as I felt a bit rushed in the end to finish off my wreath.
