ABOUT THIS HOUSE OF ARTISAN WORKSHOP


Working on a 60 x 60cm canvas, this 6-hour intensive workshop will guide you through the process of moving past fears and self-doubt into activating a spirit of playfulness and risk-taking to create a resolved, abstract painting.

1. Experience working with fluid paints and natural textures to create an abstract work.
