Watercolour is a fun and exciting medium! In this workshop we will explore a variety of watercolour techniques, their applications and create an artwork based on this. You will learn the basics of which paints and brushes are best to use, how to use water for various effects, how to create different washes and the role of paper.

You will create a contemporary artwork inspired by a landscape, foliage, abstract ideas or patterns in a relaxed and collaborative environment. There will be lots of easy watercolour techniques and tricks as well as more advanced techniques to explore and plenty of inspiration to draw from. A large range of watercolours, brushes and lovely textured watercolour paper will be available on the night to work with.

You will take away an artwork that you have created inspired by your own concept and inspiration, technical skills to use watercolour as a medium and an understanding of how to compose your own artworks.

** Purchase your own Take Home Watercolour Kit for only $60 and practise your new skills further. The kits include a set of 12 selected watercolour shades to suit botanicals.- three assorted sized brushes, beautifully textured watercolour sheets, a pencil, eraser and a summary of some tips and tricks for watercolour techniques.

Thank you! I thoroughly enjoyed the watercolor workshop. Such a beautiful, relaxing space to work and learn in. The small intimate and friendly group was inspiring and the beautifully styled grazing & work tables added a gorgeous touch of sweetness. A really special evening. I can't wait to enrol in more!


01 November 2016 • Watercolour Workshop with a Grazing Feast & Wine

The class was exactly what I was hoping it would be and more. It was such an inspirational environment and a great bunch of people in the class, we all brought something to the table and it was a great vibe. The instructor, Dreya? was a lovely teacher, she gave good instructions and examples and positive support to all. I learnt the basics which can be developed, it was freeing, liberating. I would definitely recommend this class to other. Thank you for an uplifting experience
