Watercolour and Gold Foil Botanicals (Feb 2018)

Book Now (http://weteachme.com/l/Un7KunMr)


What happens when you cross a Fluro Duo with a Couple of Colour and Design Enthusiasts?  A bloody fun collab is what!  Watercolour x Gold Foil is a workshop worth getting out of your Melbourne uniform for (no black OOTD’s around here!). You will be doubly inspired during this workshop as Bree and Sarah from Santiago Sunbird take you on a Watercolour adventure using beautiful botanicals as your inspiration.  Next up, is Lucy and Lily from Peaches + Keen, who will showcase to you their glittering gold foiling skills, as you bring to life your art work with warm, golden highlights.  The result is a satisfying handcrafted piece of art, rich in colour and texture.  Bring on the warm and fuzzies…

It was a really good experience - lots of fun and play with paint!

Lovely venue but was a course for absolute beginners. This wasn't spelled out so I didn't actually take anything meaningful away from the class. Also used cheap Micador pans to share with no mixing palette which didn't help. If I'd known I would at least have brought my own brushes, palette and paints.

Thank you Bree. I really enjoyed the workshop. I learnt some new techniques that I hope to try out soon. I'd never done watercolours or gold foil before and it was a lot of fun. The workshop was very well organised, so despite it being quite a large group, we all had plenty of materials and instruction. The lunch food was delicious too.
