Learn how to dot paint in this relaxed, friendly workshop with a maximum of 4 people (please enquire for larger groups).
Dot painting is very engaging and can be a very mindful activity promoting mental well-being. It is also a fantastic painting technique if you have always wanted to be able to produce paintings of any kind but feel you lack the skill or time to learn.
Right from the outset, attendees will learn simple, clear skills from which they can create wall-art or smaller pictures in a day, and will go home with the knowledge to produce their own painted art, cards, and a host of other decorative items (dot painting can be done on a wide variety of backgrounds and objects such as heart and 'pebble' shapes, tealight holders, and much more).
Maximum Workshop: 4 People (adults only please)
Time: arrive for 10am start - finish 4pm

I enjoyed a fabulous day learning how to do Mandala Dot painting. Sally is a great teacher and I would highly recommend this to anyone who wants to learn a new skill. It was a very relaxing day with superb teaching and coaching. I came home with lovely piece dot work. I didn't get to finish within the session, but Sally gave me paints so that I could continue at home. I am really happy with what I achieved. It was quite a meditative experience. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
I would highly recommend not only this course but the tutor as well, she is outstanding!
Response from Craft Workshops:Thank you for coming to the workshop again Susan - we had a lovely chilled day dotting and I look forward to seeing you again soon :)
