About the Event

Join me for this beginners class, learning how to paint in the traditional 'Roses and Castles' canal art style. You’ll be working on a placemat and coaster, using the same enamel paints used to decorate the boats themselves. 

In this workshop we'll cover a wee bit of history as well as; 

- development of the art, 

- what kit you need (and how to treat it right!) 

- Braunston style roses and daisies 

I'll guide you through each step, provide all materials and share hints and tips along the way. You'll take home a beautiful placemat and matching coaster. If there’s something you would like to paint instead of a placemat and coaster, please bring it along with you.

You can choose your background colour - dark green, blue, dark red or black. Please let me know when booking.

In the morning we’ll get the foundation layers painted and, after a lunch break, we’ll add the decorative top layers. No experience needed, and you don’t even have to be ‘artistic’! Please don't wear your best ballgown, as you'll be getting painty and stinky.

Due to Covid restrictions, can you please bring your own refreshments. 

There is the option to visit the Gongoozler cafe for scrummy food and drink.
