Joyous Dots: this will be your new relaxing hobby!



If you want to relax and make something beautiful at the same time, dotting joyously is for you. I'm hooked myself and look forward to sharing this lovely technique with you; any excuse to immerse myself in another joyous dots experience. Painting with dots is nothing new; think Aboriginal art, pointillism and mandalas. It's so much fun, it's no surprise it has been around for centuries and is still going strong. The problem is where to start. That is where this class comes in. You will learn how to prepare your paints, use the tools given and find and make your own to make your work truly yours. You will also learn how to use the templates to make pre-made designs and then adapt them to suit your own ideas. You can choose from 5 different colour sets (blues, greens, reds, purples and pinks). You can also use my stencils to make your own templates for many a relaxed hour and numerous lovely creations with this unimaginably satisfactory and mesmerising technique. You can even take the stencils home to continue your joyous dotting journey. This course requires a minimum of two people to run, so why not invite some people to join you? You can also book or contact me for an individual place and I'll put you on the waiting list and I'll run the workshop when I have two or more people. If a minor would like this workshop, they need to be in the company of an adult, who is also a participant.

For more than 17 years I have provided after school Art Clubs and I still love it, but I have always wanted to work with adults so I get to work with materials and techniques that need more time and are too advanced to use with kids. I also want to prove that everyone can enjoy being creative and make something they are happy with. So far it works. After a Colourbuzz workshop everyone goes away with work they are proud of and pleased with! I offer workshops in my studio, but I can also travel and work with groups of all ages. Using my experience of working with primary school kids, I'm also happy to travel to a home/venue to do creative activities for a birthday party. I have completed a Creative Crafts Course an Advanced Silversmithing course and hold QTLS Status. In addition I am DBS checked.
