Description

Start the season in style with Christmas-lover, renowned commercial illustrator and artist Mekel. In this class, you will work across different types and qualities of paper to create swing tags, gift cards and paper tree baubles with which to start decking your halls! Enjoy sipping on some Stella Bella wine as Mekel teaches you how to use watercolour ink and markers to create beautiful effects in a loose, flowing style. 


Mekel is a commercial beauty and fashion illustrator, represented by the Jacky Winter Group. Known for her fashionable illustrations including work for Elle, Twinings, Revlon and TOPSHOP, you may have seen her lovely watercolour ladies on the walls of Westfield or your Betts shoe box. With a background in graphic design, this now full-time illustrator has also taught branding, social eMarketing and fashion illustration.

You can view more of her work and purchase prints online via www.mekel.net

Parking Info

Please note, there is no parking directly adjacent to Workshop Freo. Parking is available at the J Shed, E Shed, Bather's Beach parking lots, and street parking is available in High Street, Cliff Street and Phillimore St. The use of public transport and local CAT buses is encouraged.

There is a PDF document attached to all booking confirmations with a map. Mrs Trivett Place is a sharp left just before Fleet Street. It looks more like a driveway than a road. Keep walking up the hill, past Walyalup Cultural Centre and the public toilets. You will then see our little green building, number 15, tucked beneath the Roundhouse, and overlooking Bather's Beach and the J Shed. 

Access is also possible from the back steps behind the J Shed or the footpath behind the Roundhouse. It's a little tucked away and if in doubt, type in 'Workshop Freo' to Google Maps or call 0431774371 for some assistance!

WOW! What a great workshop. Have had my eye on Mekel's art style for quite some time now so was very happy to see she was running a workshop. The venue, nibbles, wines, fun atmosphere, and 'hands on' teaching style were all the trimmings I was seeking in this Christmas inspired artist skill share. THANKYOU!!
