About the Event
Watch the boats drift by at Heatherfield Heritage. Join me canal side, for this beginners class, learning how to paint in the traditional 'Roses and Castles'. 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.
The wharf has it’s own snack shack, but feel free to bring your own lunch.
Hot and cold drinks will be provided.
