Do you want to try watercolour painting, but don't know where to start?
Know a little, but want to learn some more and stretch your skills?
Join us for a four-hour introduction to watercolours at The Art House with local artist and regular Art House exhibitor Kate Woodley-Smith.
The session will be run in an informal atmosphere where 'having a go' is key. Kate's relaxed, enthusiastic style of teaching will make you feel at ease and encourage you to play, make mistakes, and experiment as you learn.
The session will start with the pure basics (so no worries if you don't know a thing about watercolours!), before moving on to painting washes using watercolours, tea, salt and lemon to give interesting effects.
We will be exploring various techniques using brushes ; we will experiment with bleeding technique and wet on wet, as well as talking about the use of colour.
This session aims to teach you some of the basics so that you can go home and put into practice what you have learnt.
There are just 8 spaces, so please book now to avoid missing out.
Materials are provided, but feel free to bring your own. Dress for mess!
This session is suitable for adults and older teens.
The session will be in our upstairs gallery/workshop space which is accessed via a wide staircase with bannisters on either side. Accessible toilets are on the ground floor.
There will be a break at around 2pm for about 30 minutes, please pre-order drinks or lunches when you arrive.
The cafe is open from 12 if you want to have something to eat or drink beforehand.
Please arrive on time for a 12.30 prompt start.
