About the workshops:

Workshop: Get out of your Mind and into your Art

Do you feel stuck creatively? Would you like to paint from your heart rather than your head? Have you always wanted to explore abstract painting and mark making, but not sure where to start? Then this workshop is for you.

In this one-day workshop we will explore the psychological blockers to the creative process and how you can respond to these to get into your creative flow. We will be working with drawing, painting and mixed media techniques. You will learn strategies to free yourself up so you can create from your heart instead of your mind.

All basic materials provided. You are welcome to bring good quality paper, canvas paper and/or canvas, and your own favourite tools and materials.

Bring an open mind and prepare to get messy.

Workshop: Mix it Up! Mixed Media Workshop

Have you been craving new inspiration and approaches for your art practice? Are you stuck or just wanting to expand your horizon, then come join me for this fun workshop.  

We will be experimenting with printing, stamping, mark making and mixed media techniques. You will get inspired to use objects from everyday life in creative ways to creative new language in our art. You will go home with new ideas on how to create different kinds of textures, patterns and marks that will enrich your art. 

The workshop is set up as a demonstrations and practice in each new technique. That way you will go home with a number of smaller artworks that you can use as a reference for the new approaches you’ve learned. 

All basic materials provided.
Feel free to bring your own paper, cardboard, canvas and boards that you’d like to work on, as well any favourite paints, inks, brushes, pens and pencils you wish to use in the process in new ways.

And prepare to get messy!
