Beginners Canal Art Roses (Sept)



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 is 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.

Tea and coffee will be provided. For lunch, you can visit the onsite cafe, which I highly recommend! But you're more than welcome to bring your own food.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
