Join artist Josie Alcorn for an exclusive introduction to botanical art using gouache.

About this Event

Calling all painters, creatives and gouache aficionados. The talented artist, Josie Alcorn will be hosting an instructional workshop introducing you to the art of decorative botanical paintings. During the 90-minute class, you will learn how to use gouache, basic painting techniques and colour theory, and be taken on a step-by-step journey of painting a botanical artwork. You will be able to walk away with not only a newfound confidence in the medium, but with your very own decorative painting. Unwind, sit back and relax as you create a beautiful botanical art piece, with plenty of coffee and an intimate group of like-minded people by your side.
