Learn the basics of watercolour painting, so that you can confidently document beautiful things that you see on your travels – much more personal than taking photos! You will learn about the materials needed, ideas for creating your own portable kit, as well as many painting and process tips and techniques. You will take home your own work of art, a set of water brushes and heaps of new ideas!
Shibori Dyeing $75 for 3 hours

Wire Sculpture $65 for 3 hours
Learn construction techniques to create intricately detailed wire sculptures using pipe cleaners, which are soft and easy to work with. Other elements such as fabric, paper and things from nature can also added to your work to bring a sense of whimsy. You might choose to bring some extra bits to add to your sculpture.
Artist’s Book $90 for 5 hours
Spend the day learning book-binding techniques to create your own hand-bound concertina book, then explore different watercolour and brush techniques, collage, stamping, layout and application of text to transform it into an amazing piece of art. You will need to bring text from a favourite poem, song lyrics or even a special memory to inspire your work and weave into your design.
Sashiko and Boro Mending $45 for 3 hours
Boro is the rustic Japanese textile technique of layering fabrics to mend or reinforce them, and sashiko is the stitching used to hold the layers together. Learn a variety of different traditional and modern sashiko designs, and if you’d like, how to create your own designs. Bring something that needs some visible mending or make patches from the available fabrics.
Learn to Crochet $45 for 3 hours
Learn the necessary crochet techniques and stitches to start making your own infinity scarf or cowl for winter. Choose from my range of yarn, or you might wish to bring your own 100% acrylic 8ply yarn to work with. You will take home a crochet hook and the skills to finish what you have started!
