    Join us for this mid-week art social and discover how to paint stunning watercolour landscapes straight from your imagination.

    You don’t need any experience to enjoy this one-off workshop designed for beginners. With guidance from our experienced tutor, you’ll learn the basics of painting with watercolour, including:

    • formal skills like surface preparation, basic colour theory and linear perspectives
    • different ways to apply paint, with tools such as a paintbrush, twig or eyedropper.

    Then the real fun begins, as you get to experiment with exciting, unconventional painting methods using materials like cling wrap, salt and rubbing alcohol. Plus explore secret alchemical techniques to create ethereal textures and effects.

    Throughout the evening you’ll learn how to morph these experiments into gorgeous and colourful other-worldly landscapes on professional watercolour paper. Explore exciting new worlds, drawn from the depths of your own subconscious.
