Here's what you'll learn: No experience NECESSARY!
Part 1: Floral Watercolour with Stephanie (10am-1pm)
Learn the basics of playing and exploring with watercolours from contemporary botanical artist, Stephanie Fehrenbach. Stephanie will share her process of colour blending, layering, developing effective compositions and mixing your own unique palette to create expressive and dynamic paintings with a fresh and modern feel. Don't be intimidated by watercolour any longer! Enjoy the process of creating in this fun and relaxing atmosphere. Perfect for a beginner looking to learn the fundamentals, or for those wishing to loosen up and bring more spontaneity to their work.
Part 2: Brush Lettering & Calligraphy with Rebecca (2pm-5pm)
Learn the basics of brush calligraphy from the ground up with Rebecca Courtice. Learn what brush calligraphy is, why it differs from traditional calligraphy and how anyone can master the techniques (even if you have horrendous handwriting!) Rebecca will walk you through the basics using brush tip markers as well as paint brushes and watercolour paints- which you will have already started using with Stephanie. Learn how to form a basic calligraphy alphabet and words- then use your new skills to create your own hand lettered quote on the watercolour piece you create earlier in the day!
Here's what you get in your kits:
