This two hour workshop is aimed at beginners as well as those who have some drawing or illustration experience. Local Tattoo artist Beki Davies will have you designing & hand painting a small vintage-style tattoo illustration which will be transferred to watercolour paper via tracing and transferring via a lightbox.
Participants will then fill in using watercolours, tattoo inks and treat the paper with a coffee wash, giving it an antique-y vintage look! By the end of the class you will have learnt the process of creating your image, transfering to paper and appyling colours, inks and watercolour and have a finished and framed unique tattoo illustration, hand painted by you.
