Our adult workshops are slightly different to our children’s workshop.
The course will still be based around learning one stroke and the boards will be involved initially for practising the technique and learning different designs such as roses, other flowers, butterflies, spring time characters like little lambs or other insects etc.
After some quick practise on our boards and once everyone is happy to move on- it will be time to create the plaques that will be taken home that day. There are so many different types of plaques to choose from. Some are more like coasters or larger heat proof mats for kitchens. There are also different shaped signs to choose from such as arrows, stars, hearts. On top of that we also have little pots that can be painted up using the techniques, and they would make lovely Easter gift (especially with a couple of chocolate eggs are hidden inside).
On this workshop, you will be learning a technique to take away with them and practice and use in the future. They will also be taking their unique plaque of choice home with them weather they are keeping it for themselves or creating it as a gift.
We will also give out handy pointers such as where to purchase the materials needed if requested and give names of other artist who are inspirational in the art form so that they can go away and look at them if they wish.
Al these materials are hypo allergenic and only paint and brushes are used meaning that the workshop should be suitable for all ages and abilities.
Often, we are told that our students find one stroke very therapeutic and we feel it has benefited so many people already – not just financially.
